Making a comeback into the nominee list for Female player of the year award is Chase Amira’s Pauline Naise, who has been in sensational form this season for her side that is currently third on the league table with 34 points from 17 matches. The hockey player cum footballer has so far netted 19 times, which is equal to 39% of the total number of goals that Amira have scored.
