Nikita Parris will celebrate a City milestone as she makes her 100th Club appearance against Atletico Madrid.

The forward - the Blues’ fourth Centurion after Steph Houghton, Jill Scott and Izzy Christiansen - joined the Blues in January 2016, having enjoyed a successful loan spell from her hometown Club Everton.

Speedy and tricky with passion in abundance, Parris has played a key role as Nick Cushing’s side clinched a sensational sweep of domestic trophies: the Super League title, Continental Tyres Cup and FA Cup, in addition to consecutive Champions League semi-finals.

Admired for her dedication, the 24-year-old is a fans’ favourite and wrote her name into the history books as the Club’s all-time top goalscorer last season with 38 goals in 97 appearances.

She ended the 2017/18 campaign as top scorer with 18, finishing second in the WSL 1’s scoring charts in the process.

Following a whirlwind 18 months, which also heralded her senior England debut, she penned a new deal at the Club in November 2017.

Her first appearance for the Lionesses arrived in June 2016, in which she claimed an assist, and she would go on to score twice in her second display days later.

In May 2018, she earned a nomination for the England Women’s Player of the Year award.

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