Greenwood named PFA Fans' February POTM

Alex Greenwood has been February’s PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month.

The defender - City's top appearance maker for 2021/22 - has starred this season, featuring in every single game and proving one of our most consistent performers.

While she has lined up alongside a number of defensive partners, the 28-year-old has coped admirably, leading by example and contributing at both ends of the pitch.


She made her 50th appearance for the Club in January this year and scored her first goal in the Continental Cup victory over Leicester in September.

Producing a string of impressive February displays, she earned three clean sheets to help Gareth Taylor's side to three wins out of four in all competitions, as City progressed in the two domestic cup competitions and claimed memorable wins over her former Club Manchester United.

Continuing her fine form, she then played her part in March's Conti Cup Final success, as City fought back from a goal down to triumph 3-1 against Chelsea and clinch our fourth success in the competition.

In a shortlist heavily dominated by defensive players, Greenwood got the nod ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's Ashleigh Neville, Chelsea duo Jess Carter and Millie Bright, and Leicester City's Ashleigh Plumptre and Jemma Purfield.

Deserved recognition for her efforts.

Congratulations, Al!
