In SWPL 2, October saw East Fife go unbeaten as they looked to climb out of the relegation zone.

Player-coach Liz Anderson played the full 90 minutes in both games as they drew 1-1 against Queen’s Park and St Johnstone.

She played a key role to help tighten their defence – they conceded 10 goals in three games in August – and also scored the opening goal in their impressive 1-1 away draw with St Johnstone.

The other nominees for the October SWPL award were Leah Eddie (Hibernian), Kirsty Howat (Rangers) and Hayley Lauder (Glasgow City), while for the SWPL 2 award the other nominees were Georgie McTear (Gartcairn) and Beth Mowatt (Montrose).
