Shaw wins WSL Player of the Month

Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has been named the Barclays Women’s Super League Player of the Month for October.

The Jamaican was at the centre of a hugely successful month for City, which saw us win each of our three matches against Leicester, Tottenham and Liverpool.

Gareth Taylor’s side were on target nine times in those encounters while only shipping one goal in the process.

Shaw contributed five goals and one assist to that tally, and she remains the current leading scorer in this season’s WSL.


The forward fended off the sizeable challenge of Manchester United duo Mary Earps and Leah Galton, West Ham’s Dagny Brynjarsdottir, Chelsea’s Lauren James and Arsenal’s Frida Maanum to claim the award.

And after finding the net once again in our 3-0 win against Reading, the Jamaican’s fine form has continued at the beginning of November.

Reflecting on winning WSL Player of the Month, Shaw said: “I am delighted to win this award for the first time – it has been a very successful month for us as a team and I am grateful to everyone who voted for me in a very talented shortlist of players.


“We are feeling so confident after these recent wins and I am really enjoying my football right now personally, but the most important thing is results and helping the team to have as much success as possible.

"I will keep working hard to continue my goalscoring form to help carry on our great form of late and to keep the smiles on our fans' faces.”

Everyone at Manchester City would like to congratulate Bunny on her Player of the Month award.

City v United: Etihad Derby

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 30,000 tickets already sold, it promises to be another historic occasion.
