UCD Waves striker Aine O’Gorman has been named Continental Tyres Women's National League Player of the Month for March.

A stunning month saw UCD Waves defeat Peamount United, Kilkenny United WFC and Galway WFC, scoring 13 goals along the way, with club captain O’Gorman leading by example.

“We had a good month of March, and won all our games which was the goal from the start.

“Once the team wins that is the main thing but to get on the scoresheet a couple of times was a nice added bonus,” O’Gorman said as she was presented with the award.

“It’s obviously nice to get an individual award but you just want to see your team win and do well,” added O’Gorman, whose UCD Waves side sit at the top of the Continental Tyres Women’s National League with just two games remaining for them.

An impressive month on the domestic front was added to with the international side as O’Gorman got on the scoresheet in the 5-0 win away to Montenegro, before going on the play the full 90 minutes of the defeat to Spain.

“We always knew we had to go out and do the job against Montenegro, while we were going to be up against it facing Spain. As disappointing as the Spain result was, we are still in contention and have three big games coming up. If we win the three games, qualification is still there for us,” O’Gorman reflected.

Looking ahead to a busy perod with her club, O’Gorman insists they are taking it one game at a time, with Wednesday’s Continental Tyres WNL Cup semi-final against Galway WFC the primary focus.

“Preparations are going well for the semi final. We are going to have to focus on winning the remaining games of the season. The cup semi against Galway will be a great game, one we are looking forward to, and hopefully we can finish the season with a bit of silverware.”

Aine O’Gorman was presented with her Continental Tyres WNL Player of the Month Award by Tom Dennigan, General Sales Manager with Continental Tyres, at the Glenview Hotel, Co Wicklow.
