Weir hits City Century

Caroline Weir has become the latest 'City Centurion', having made her 100th appearance for the Club.

The Scotland international reached the milestone in the Continental Cup group stage visit of Durham, coming off the bench with 20 minutes remaining of Thursday night's 3-0 victory and sealing the points with a typically thumping drive off the crossbar.

Technically gifted, skilful with an eye for goal, the attacking midfielder, who joined the Club in June 2018, has become one of the first names on the teamsheet and one of the most important components of Gareth Taylor’s side.

Reflecting on her milestone, she expressed her pride.

“I was surprised when I was told!” she admitted. “It’s a really proud moment for me.

“To have featured 100 times for the Club is a huge honour. I feel privileged to be part of this Club.

“When I signed, I didn’t predict the number of appearances I’d make but I’m really happy to have reached 100.

“I’m likely to have been part of the team and I’m proud to have played a lot of minutes and won silverware.”

In her 100 games, Weir has scored 27 goals, including two Nissan Goal of the Season winners, and lifted three trophies: two FA Cups and the Continental Cup.

The Conti Cup penalty shoot-out triumph over Arsenal saw the Scot claim the Player of the Match award for a tireless display.

During her time in Manchester, she also made her Olympic debut – selected as one of only three non-English players in Team GB’s squad over the summer – and was named Scotland’s Player of the Year for 2020.

Her impressive displays also earned her successive spots in the PFA WSL Team of the Year, while she also claimed the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award for December 2020.

Forever etched in the history books as the first female goalscorer in a professional Manchester Derby, she bettered that feat with a sensational chip against Manchester United in the 2020/21 season.

Many congratulations, Caz!
