GREAT SCOTT: Jill Scott is set to make her 100th City appearance

Jill Scott will celebrate a City milestone as she makes her 100th Club appearance against Birmingham Ladies.

The 31-year-old midfielder joined the Blues in November 2013, having transferred from Everton where she enjoyed a seven-year spell after starting her career with hometown club Sunderland.

An integral part of Nick Cushing's side, the England star, who has clocked up 126 caps for her country, has helped the Blues to four trophy successes - two Continental Tyres Cups, a Super League title and an FA Cup - and a Champions League semi-final spot at the first attempt.

Admired for her dedication, energy, hard work and skill, Scott has bagged 20 goals, including City's first European goal and a memorable effort in the 2017 FA Cup final at Wembley.

A key contributor in the Blues' accomplishments, the midfielder put pen to paper on a new deal in September last year, having already extended her contract in August 2015.

On the international stage, she helped the Lionesses to a bronze medal at the 2015 World Cup - her third World Cup - and also represented Great Britain at the 2012 London Olympics.

In October 2015, she became the eighth player to receive a century of England caps and has netted 18 goals for her country.

She becomes the second City star to reach 100 appearances since the Club re-launched in 2014, after Steph Houghton achieved the feat against Sunderland in January.

A highly-respected figure, Scott is a consummate role model and a crucial member of Cushing's side.

Everyone at the Club wishes to congratulate Jill on her 100th appearance.
