Bonagee won their first ever Women’s League title in 2019 with the Dry Arch side ending the year with a perfect 100 per cent record in the League. The League medals were officially presented on Friday night with Illies Celtic taking the runners-up spot.
Diver staved off some tough competition to land the Player of the Year prize.
Diver weighed in with seven goals from midfield as Bonagee were crowned champions. Her tally included a hat-trick against Fanad United, a vital brace in an away win at Culdaff and a key strike in a 3-2 early-season home win over champions Illies.
Illies Celtic ace Paula McGrory was the top goalscorer in the NWWSL with 16 League goals and she was followed in the scoring charts by her Illies team-mate Emma Doherty and Culdaff’s Erin McLaughlin, who recently made a move to Sion Swifts.
Illies Celtic overcame Greencastle to win the Matthew Rudden Construction Cup last Thursday night. Goals from Emma Doherty, Paula McGrory and Alana Doherty gave Illies a 3-2 win as they added the Cup to their Ulster Cup and Inishowen Cup wins.
Kate McClenaghan and Eilish Havlin bagged the Greencastle goals.
The medals and trophy were presented to the respective clubs on Friday night.Tags:
