Galway WFC defender Singleton named Player of the Month
Singleton honoured in impressive break-through season
Galway WFC defender Chloe Singleton has been selected as the Continental Tyres Women’s National League Player of the Month for September.
The 17-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant breakthrough season with Billy Clery’s side having joined in July.
Singleton has impressed with her defensive capabilities and her consistent performances as Galway claimed an impressive 5-1 win over Kilkenny United and were narrowly defeated in the WNL Shield Final against UCD Waves.
Singleton discovered that she was Player of the Month whilst she was on international duty with the Republic of Ireland Women’s Under 19s as they qualified for the Elite Round following wins over Latvia and Estonia.
On receiving the award, Singleton admitted it came as a complete surprise and has praised the quality of the coaching at Galway WFC for helping her improve.
Singleton said: “It came to me as a real surprise seeing as I’ve only been in the National League a few months. To be recognised above all the quality of players we have in the League, it’s a big moment for me.
“Joining Galway was a great decision because the training and coaching I’ve received has definitely improved me. It’s down to Billy (Clery) and Maz (Sweeney), and it’s really helped me bring my game on.
“I found out when I was away with the Women’s Under 19s side. It was probably one of my best trips away, getting plenty of game-time and it’s given me a great confidence boost as well.
“I joined at the same time as Lucia (Lobato) so we’ve really helped each other out and we’re both benefitting from the game-time for Galway. I was surprised by the high standard in the club and the League but I really think next season, as a club, we can definitely find another level.”
