Gallery: Happy Birthday Jill Scott!

It’s Happy Birthday today to City legend Jill Scott.

Our first signing in November 2013 as we became a professional outfit, the midfielder played a central role in our success, helping the Club to an astonishing eight trophies in that time.

She made 194 appearances in total, scoring 25 goals, including our very first Champions League goal and the fourth goal of our maiden FA Cup Final success in 2017 before deciding to call time on her career this summer.

It's safe to say that Scott finished at the very top of the professional game - helping England to an historic Euro 2022 triumph in her final match.

Jill also went in search of further silverware even in retirement, with the former City midfielder crowned the latest Queen of the Jungle on the popular ITV show: I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

She will return to the Academy Stadium as a special guest for this month's Barclays Women’s Super League clash with Arsenal, giving City supporters the chance to show their appreciation for Scott.
