The Brazilian forward is the first Swieqi player to pick up this individual accolade in the 2021/2022 MFA Women’s League season.

Peinado, who joined Swieqi during the January transfer window, established herself as one of the most exciting players in the league thanks to her offensive prowess.

She has finished the championship with 10 games, with 7 of them scored just in the month of April.

In fact, Peinado launched the month of April with a hat-trick in Swieqi’s 5-1 victory against Kirkop United before finding the net in the 4-1 win against Raiders Lija.

The 29-year-old forward capped her brilliant month with a remarkable hat-trick in the 3-0 win against Mġarr that virtually handed Swieqi the second place in the league.

She was presented with the trophy prior to Swieqi’s last game of the season against Birkirkara on May 11.
