The SSE Airtricity/SWAI Player of the Month nominations for September have been announced.
Following his move from Aston Villa in August, Rory Hale gets his first nomination for the award after his impressive form for Galway United whilst Bastien Hery also gets the nod for the first time after his displays for Limerick.
Limerick team-mate Chiedozie Ogbene gets his second nomination of the season whilst David McMillan, Brandon Miele and Keith Ward are also rewarded for their impressive form during the month of September.
The six nominations for the SSE Airtricity/SWAI September Player of the Month award are:-
Rory Hale (Galway United): Earned a call-up to the Republic of Ireland Under-21s on back of yet more fine midfield displays as Galway edged to safety with two wins and a draw.
Bastien Hery (Limerick): The composed midfielder has had a fine month, standing out in two games against Cork as well as away to Bray.
David McMillan (Dundalk): The Dundalk striker is still going strong, netting three times in the league as well as the opener in the EA Sports Cup final and quarter final of Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup.
Brandon Miele (Shamrock Rovers): He carried his goal scoring form into last month with a sublime strike against Cork City, followed by another against Finn Harps as well as a hat-trick in the Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup quarter final with non-league Bluebell United.
Chiedozie Ogbene (Limerick): Nominated earlier in the season, the young winger is continuing to impress and cause havoc on the wing for Limerick.
Keith Ward (Bohemians): A hat-trick away to Drogheda United was the highlight but the Dubliner also impressed in the 3-2 win against St Patrick’s Athletic.
The winner will be announced early next week.
