Kirsty McGuinness - NIFWA September Player of the Month

Posted : 4th October 2019 at 07:10:53

Linfield captain Kirsty McGuinness added another trophy to her collection when she picked up the NIFWA Women's Player of the Month award for September.

McGuinness fired Linfield to the Danske Bank Women's Premiership title by scoring nine vital goals in the month, as the Blues defeated Cliftonville, Comber Rec and Derry City on their way to lifting the trophy on a dramatic final day.

The Northern Ireland international is the first player to win NIFWA's monthly award twice.

Upon collecting the Belleek award, McGuinness said, "Scoring goals is always a bonus but it's about getting the results and Sion Swifts pushed us all the way this season. We knew we needed to score seven in our final game. Once we got the seventh we didn't relax, we pushed on and got three more to make sure the job was done. It's not easy winning four titles in a row but we're delighted to have achieved it."
