Pamela Tajonar and Abby Callaghan have collected the November 2022/23 Scottish Women’s Premier League Player of the Month awards.

Tajonar becomes the first ever goalkeeper to win the award after keeping two clean sheets from two games in November, including an outstanding performance in their 0-0 draw away to Rangers.

The Mexican ‘keeper was signed by Celtic in August and has become the starter for her side. In the 10 games she has played, she has only conceded two goals, both against Glasgow City. She currently leads the SWPL for most clean sheets.

In SWPL 2, Queen’s Park won all three matches in November with scores of 2-1 against Kilmarnock, St Johnstone, and Boroughmuir Thistle. Their form means they are currently fourth in SWPL 2, seven points away from second place.

Callaghan played over 75 minutes in all three matches, scoring the opening goal for her side against Kilmarnock and St Johnstone. She then scored the winner against Boroughmuir Thistle, ending the month with three goals and one assist.

The nominees for the November SWPL award were Rachel Donaldson (Partick Thistle), Kaela McDonald-Nguah (Motherwell), and Krystyna Freda (Hibernian) and for the SWPL 2 award the nominees were Holly Daniel (Montrose) and Lauren Kerr (Gartcairn).
