The biggest prizes in the women’s domestic game will be dished out on LOI TV from 8pm.

THE CREAM OF the crop in the Women’s National League [WNL] will be honoured tonight.

LOI TV will have live coverage of the 2021 SSE Airtricity WNL awards from 8pm, with the biggest prizes in the women’s domestic game up for grabs.

The winners of Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, Manager of the Year will be announced. A Team of the Year will also be unveiled, with awards to be given out for Golden Boot, Golden Gloves, and U17 and U19 Players of the Year.

WNL champions Shelbourne are without a nominee in the Player of the Year category; Wexford Youth’s FAI Cup-winning captain Kylie Murphy, Peamount star Karen Duggan and Galway’s Irish international Savannah McCarthy go head-to-head for the honour.

Shels 16-year-old sensation Jessie Stapleton is up for Young Player of the Year, though, alongside Wexford duo Ellen Molloy and Aoibheann Clancy, while league-winning boss Noel King is in the running for the top manager gong, with DLR Waves mastermind Graham Kelly and James O’Callaghan of Peamount also nominated.

The 2021 WNL season was a roaring success, with significant progress made on and off the field. Shelbourne snatched the crown and denied Peas three-in-a-row on a dramatic decider day, while Wexford beat them to FAI Cup glory a week later.
