Leah won the poll by a single vote ahead of Vivianne Miedema in second place. Leah’s performances have again caught the eye and she has forced her way into Phil Neville’s Lionesses starting line-up after another impressive campaign. Arseblog News spoke to Leah in depth about her performances this season at the end of March.

Unsurprisingly, Kim Little’s goal against Reading won the goal of the season poll, the 11-1 victory over Bristol City, which saw Vivianne Miedema score 6 and set up 4 was voted game of the season, while Danielle van de Donk’s last minute winner away at Manchester United in September was crowned ‘moment of the season.’
Third is our Goal of the Season!
