Wexford Youths striker Rianna Jarrett has won the Continental Tyres Women's National League Player of the Month award for June.

The 23-year old striker has enjoyed a fantastic campaign so far for the Women's National League Champions and scored five goals in two games during the month of June.

Jarrett scored a match-winning brace against title-rivals Peamount United and a hat-trick against Limerick WFC to claim the Player of the Month award.

Jarrett received international recognition for her form this season after she was called up to the Republic of Ireland WNT squad for the two World Cup qualifiers against Norway, coming on for her second cap in the 1-0 defeat in Stavanger.

Jarrett said: "I'm delighted to get the award and I'd like to thank my teammates and coaching staff for their help in getting this award.

"We've had a fantastic season so far and I think everyone in the squad is trying to find a new level to their game. We're working hard each week and it really paid off in June with the wins over Peamount United and Limerick.

"I'm happy with the goals I'm scoring at the moment. The time I spent with the international squad really helped and I felt much fitter and sharper after it, and I think that showed in the games after that.

"I really want to continue to improve though and I'm still working hard to get fitter and stronger. I want to help Wexford win the league and there is still a lot of work to be done so we need to keep this form up for the rest of the season."
