Bio

sensational striker...

The 26-year-old, better known as “Bunny” switched to the Academy Stadium before the 2021/22 campaign from Division 1 Feminine side Bordeaux.

Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Shaw’s foray into the game started with Eastern Florida State College Titans where she earned NSCAA first-team National Junior College Athletic Association All-America honours in 2016.

Transferring to the University of Tennessee in 2017, she was named in the All-SEC first team in both her seasons there alongside being awarded the SEC Offensive Player of the Year accolade in 2018.

Also figuring for WPSL side Florida Krush, the forward moved to France in the summer of 2019 and made her professional debut against FC Fleury 91 in August of that year, scoring twice in a 4-1 win.

Finding the back of the net ten times in 15 appearances in her first season at the club, Shaw didn’t rest on her laurels and scored 24 times in 21 appearances in all competitions in 2020/21.

Also a seasoned international with her homeland of Jamaica, the 5ft 11in forward represented her country at various youth levels before making her debut for the senior side in a 6-0 win over the Dominican Republic in August 2015, scoring twice in that fixture.

Since then, she has recorded an impressive 42 goals in 30 appearances for the Reggae Girlz – making her their all-time leading goalscorer.

Our #21 sports her nickname ‘Bunny’ on the back of her City shirt, having affectionately been given the name by her older brother Kentardo for her love of carrots!

Grabbing 19 goals in her debut season at City, the Jamaican has taken her game to new levels in 2022/23.

Indeed, Shaw’s first strike (her 25th of the season) in a 2-1 win over Brighton in March 2023 saw her become the highest-scoring women’s player across a single season in our history.

Following an historic campaign in front of goal at the end of the 2022/23 campaign, scoring 31 goals in 30 games, the Jamaican signed a two-year contract extension - keeping her at the Academy Stadium until 2026.
