Baggaley wins PFA Women's Player of the Month

Bristol City Women's Sophie Baggaley has been voted the first ever winner of the PFA Women's Player of the Month Award for September. 

In a vote run by the PFA, the goalkeeper received 50% of the vote from fans for September with Birmingham City Women’s Meaghan Sargeant taking second place.

Baggaley’s strong performances – where she kept two clean sheets in four games and helped her side win 1-0 away to Brighton as well as take points off of Man City and champions, Chelsea  - over the last month has resonated with City’s fans and supporters of all clubs alike.

The England Youth International made a staggering twenty-six saves in September in the WSL, seventeen of them coming from close range and throughout the month she saved 91% of all efforts she faced. 

This accolade adds to the awards Baggaley has received so far this season with the goalkeeper having also been voted FAWSL Player of the Month in a poll run by the FA. 

The full list of contenders from the final shortlist polled were as follows:

  • Sophie Baggaley (Bristol City Women FC) - 50%
  • Meaghan Sargeant (Birmingham City Women FC) – 23%
  • Steph Houghton (Man City Women) – 9%
  • Magdalena Eriksson (Chelsea Women) – 7%
  • Nikita Parris (Man City Women) - 6%
  • Kim Little (Arsenal Women) – 5%
