The Severn Sport Player of the Month is back and this season, we are going at it alone!
After having the award as a sponsored award for the last two seasons, we have brought the award back for the 2023/24 season – solely provided by Severn Sport.
As usual, the Player of the Month shortlist is made up of three players included in the Team of the Month for that month – check out January’s Team of the Month here.
The winner is presented with the award and an image of them receiving the POTM trophy is then shared on Severn Sport’s social media during the following month.
This season’s winners include Longlevens winger Shiyak Sutherland, Gloucester City Women Development Captain, Nicole Lewis and Slimbridge winger Rudi McKinnon.
So let’s check out this month’s shortlist
Charlie Hitchings (Slimbridge) – Hitchings scored in the demolition of Longlevens and followed up with a Man of the Match display against Worcester City in the Floodlit Cup. He makes the team and is the first name on the shortlist for Player of the Month.
Lucy Dannatt (Longlevens Ladies) – Lucy is the second player on the shortlist for Player of the Month due to scoring key goals for her side and continuing to be an inspirational captain for Longlevens. Her goals have come during a month where Rob McGeever has had different attacking players missing – so to have goals consistently from midfield is vital!
Zoe Gabb (Gloucester City Women Development) – The third and final player on the shortlist for Player of the Month. In the two games I saw her play, she produced eight goals and the thing that impressed me the most was the fact she scored all sorts of goals. If Gloucester City Women Devs are to continue their title challenge, they will need Gabb to continue her form for as long as possible.
