Coombs up for December WSL GOTM prize

Laura Coombs’ superb strike against Brighton is amongst the shortlist for the Barclays WSL Goal of the Month award for December.

City’s attacking midfielder has been in magnificent form all season for Gareth Taylor’s side and is also up for December's WSL Player of the Month award too.

And she again illustrated her quality with a sublime strike in our 3-1 win over the Seagulls at the Academy Stadium at the start of December.

After a run by Julie Blakstad was cut short by the Brighton defence, the ball ricocheted into the path of Coombs.

Presented with a clear sight of goal, the midfielder made no mistake, rifling into the top corner from the edge of the box for a magnificent goal.

Also making the shortlist are Manchester United duo Ona Batlle and Leah Galton for their strikes against Aston Villa, Vivianne Miedema for her effort against Everton, Chelsea’s Sam Kerr for her goal at Leicester, Kirsty Hanson of Aston Villa (v Arsenal) and Hawa Cissoko for West Ham in the Hammers clash at Tottenham.
