Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has been shortlisted for March’s Barclays Women’s Super League Player of the Month award.

City made it through another month with a 100% record in the league, claiming victories against Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea.

And the Jamaican was at the centre of that success, grabbing five goals across three starts for Gareth Taylor’s side.


She began the month with a hat-trick against Spurs, as City came from behind to move up to second in the WSL.

Another standout performance followed against Brighton, with Shaw’s brace seeing her break Nikita Parris’ record for the most goals by a City women’s player across a single season in the process.

Indeed, the Jamaican’s tally now stands at an astonishing 26 in 24 appearances for 2022/23, while her 15 goals in 16 WSL games means she is also the league’s top scorer.

And although she couldn’t add to her total in a 2-0 victory over title rivals Chelsea in our final March encounter, the forward’s tireless pressing from the front and typically clever link play was essential to helping City over the line.

She faces competition from West Ham’s Viviane Asseyi, Aston Villa’s Rachel Daly, Liverpool’s Emma Koivisto and Arsenal duo Leah Williamson and Caitlin Foord for the award.

Voting will close at 10:00 (UK) on Monday 3 April. Cast your vote by clicking here.
