City’s women’s team celebrated the conclusion of another memorable campaign with our annual End of Season Awards.
Once again, due to social distancing restrictions with the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s awards ceremony, presented by Pioneer, was conducted digitally.
The ceremony was hosted by on our We're Not Really Here live matchday show ahead of our men's game against Newcastle United, as three City stars were presented with awards for the SCM Player of the Season, the Nissan Goal of the Season and Gatorade Rising Star.
Unsurprisingly, Caroline Weir clinched the Nissan Goal of the Season gong for the second successive season with another glorious effort in a Manchester Derby.
The Scotland international, who earned the 2019/20 award for her long-range stunner at the Etihad Stadium in 2019/20, went one better in the Academy Stadium's first home Derby, showcasing exquisite skill to roll the ball back and plant a delightful chip over Mary Earps and into the far corner.
Though humble, the midfield magician said: “I’ll take any goal against United but obviously the last two have been special. It’s nice to pick up this award.
“I think overall it’s been a positive season but obviously we’re disappointed to lose out on the league but if you look at the bigger picture, we’ve had a lot of changes this season so we’ve set a good foundation for going forward.
“I’m excited for next season. Gaz has come in and played a fairly similar way to what we did before.
“It took a bit of time to gel but especially the second half of the season and now we’re seeing the results and performances - we’ve clicked and it’s about building on that next season.”
