REPUBLIC OF IRELAND striker Rianna Jarrett has won the 2019 Só Hotels Women’s National League Player of the Year award.

The awards banquet was held at the Castle Oaks Hotel in Limerick on Saturday, where Jarrett also won the top goalscorer award as well as clinching a spot on the team of the season.

Galway WFC’s Kayla Brady was named Under-17 Player of the Year, while Shelbourne’s Emily Whelan got the Young Player of the Year Award.

Eamon Naughton was also recognised on the night as he was given a special Services to the Women’s National League award for his hard work and dedication since the League’s inception.
