Women's Team

A good luck message from Jill Scott ahead of the derby!

Jill Scott has sent on her best wishes to her former City team-mates ahead of Sunday's clash with United.

The legendary midfielder announced her retirement from the professional game in the summer, calling time on a stellar eight years of service for the Club.

Having helped England to Euro 2022 glory in July - a first major international honour since 1966 - Scott went on to be crowned Queen of the Jungle in the latest series of popular ITV show I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Making 194 appearances as a founding member of our first professional women's team, she won seven domestic honours during her time at the Academy Stadium.

The former Lioness also played an important role in our previous Barclays Women's Super League meeting with Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium back in 2019.

And while Scott won't be able to attend Sunday's showdown in person, she's sure to be cheering us on from afar.

Ahead of what promises to be an historic clash, she has sent on her best wishes to the team.



City welcome Manchester United to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 11 December.

Kick-off is scheduled for 12:30 (UK), with tickets selling fast for our third-ever women's match at the Etihad.

We hosted Everton there back in May 2014, before welcoming our local rivals in September 2019, when Caroline Weir’s wonder strike saw us run out 1-0 winners in front of what was then a WSL record crowd, and what remains a club record of 31, 213 fans.

With over 40,000 tickets already sold, it promises to be another historic occasion.
