‘Bunny’ Shaw wins another Player-of-the-Month award
MANCHESTER, England (CMC) — Reggae Girl Khadija “Bunny” Shaw has been adjudged Manchester City Women’s Player-of-the-Month for December.
The prolific Spanish Town-born striker beat out competition from Dutch forward Jill Roord and England international Lauren Hemp to earn her second-successive Player-of-the-Month honour.
Shaw, 26, netted three times in December — all those goals coming in a hat-trick against Everton as City thrashed them 4-1 at Merseyside in the Women’s Super League.
She was also exceptional against Aston Villa, helping her side to come from a goal down to win 2-1 at home, Hemp notching a double in that encounter.
In November, Shaw scored four goals — including another hat-trick against Tottenham as City stormed to a crushing 7-0 victory also at home.
Shaw leads the league goal-scoring charts with nine goals from as many games, extending her red-hot form from last season when she bagged 31 goals from 30 games in all competitions, to be voted City’s Player-of-the-Season.
City lie second in the league on 22 points, just three adrift of leaders and title-holders Chelsea but level with Arsenal.
Last season, City finished fourth.
