An all-women judging panel has been announced for the Scottish Women’s Football Awards, being staged at Hampden Park in November.
Aileen Campbell, chief executive of Scottish Women’s Football (SWF), will be joined on the panel by Shirley Martin, the Scottish FA’s head of girls’ and women’s football.
Fellow judges are Fiona McIntyre, SWPL managing director; TV pundit and Motherwell coach and player Leanne Crichton; Kate Cooper, St Mirren WFC head coach and chairwoman of the SWF Championship and League One management committee; plus, former player and ScottishPower’s senior corporate affairs manager, Stephanie Todd.
SWF will host this year’s awards on November 25 at a glittering ceremony at the national stadium in Glasgow.
The Sunday Post is media partner to the event, which will shine a spotlight on success and recognise achievement both on and off the pitch.
Campbell said: “The Scottish Women’s Football Awards are an opportunity to showcase the best in the women’s game in Scotland and that’s why we are delighted to reveal an all-women panel that represents both the elite and grass-roots game, as well as a previous winner in Leanne Crichton and our new principal partner, ScottishPower, in recognition of the significant backing given to the whole game across the country.
“As well as sporting success by those who stand out in their leagues, the women’s game exemplifies the power of football to change lives and inspire others, and I can’t wait to celebrate that in November.”
She added: “I hope, through the nomination process, we can hear stories of brave or inspiring individuals across Scotland who are advancing our game.”
Nominations from supporters are being encouraged on the SWF website from tomorrow until the end of September.
The awards are designed to recognise not only sporting success but also overcoming adversity both on and off the field.
Sunday Post editor Dave Lord said: “We are absolutely delighted to be media partner for the awards.
“This feels like an exciting time for women’s football. There was a huge buzz around the recent World Cup – the only thing missing was Scotland!
“It should be a great night on November 25.”
