There are plenty of contenders for Player of the Year, but who will get your vote?

We're inviting supporters to vote for their 2018-19 Ladies Player of the Year.

It's been another impressive season for Gemma Donnelly's side, who have once again dominated in the league - winning the FA WNL Northern Premier Division for the third successive season - and also retained the FA WNL Cup. 

There have been many impressive individual contributions throughout the campaign.

Goalkeeper Danielle Gibbons defied the odds to come back from injury and produce some show-stopping saves between the sticks, while Amelia Size was a more than capable back-up when called upon.

Kayleigh McDonald has been Rovers' most dependable defender, turning out more times than any other player in the backline.

She's been assisted by solid displays from Chelsey Jukes, who earned a call-up to the England Universities squad for the Home Nations tournament, and Alex Taylor, who scored a three minute hat-trick at home to Middlesbrough.

January signing Serena Fletcher put in plenty of impressive displays since her move from Leicester City, providing extra defensive cover following long-term injuries to fellow defenders Ellie Stewart and Charlotte Stuart. 

In midfield, captain Lynda Shepherd has led the team to league and cup glory once again, in what is her final season before retirement, complemented by Natasha Fenton's energetic, box-to-box displays.

Alongside them, Jess Holbrook's countless assists helped her to pick up Ladies Footballer of the Year at Rovers' End of Season awards night. She has featured more times than any other Rovers player this season.

Hannah Walsh enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in blue-and-white, playing 22 first-team games as well as continuing her development as part of the Reserve team. 

Pacy winger Lagan Makin again weighed in with a glut of goals, scoring 18 throughout the season, while Lauren Davies has been assisting goals for fun on the other flank. 

Further forward, Rovers' Disabled Supporters Player of the Year Natasha Flint produced many moments of magic, netting a mammoth 41 goals in all competitions, whilst number nine Saffron Jordan was named FA WNL Northern Premier Division top scorer, with 32 league goals. 

Mid-season signing Sophie Charlton has also added crucial goals to help Rovers over the line, scoring seven times in seven games. 

Voting will close on Sunday May 26th, with the winner announced on Friday May 31st.
