Shaw claims record haul for 2022/23

Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has become Manchester City’s highest-scoring women’s player across a single season.

The Jamaican grabbed two goals in our dramatic 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, taking her tally to an astonishing 26 goals in 22 games.

The record had previously held by Nikita Parris, who struck 24 goals during the 2018/19 campaign when City claimed a domestic cup double.

Third on the illustrious list is Pauline Bremer who scored 22 in 2019/20 while Lauren Hemp is fourth with 21 in 2021/22.

However, those tallies have now been surpassed by Shaw, who is also on course to claim the WSL golden boot.

Indeed, the forward has now found the net on 26 occasions in just 22 matches, at an average of 1.18 per game.

In 2023 alone she has grabbed two hat-tricks, while also striking four times in an 8-1 FA Cup win over Bristol City in February.

Her overall tally for the Club stands at 45 goals in 51 appearances, at an average of 0.88 per game. 

To put that into context, Bremer (0.73) is the only other City player to have averaged a scoring rate better than one every other match across their time at the Club.

Congratulations to Bunny Shaw on her latest achievement!
