Steph Catley wins Australia’s PFA Player of the Year Award

4

Arsenal left-back Steph Catley has been named the PFA Player of the Year in her native Australia. Catley joined the Gunners from Melbourne City this summer and is considered one of, if not the best left-back in world football.

Catley staved off competition from Sam Kerr and Arsenal teammates Caitlin Foord and Lydia Williams to win the prize for the first time in her career. The 26-year old captained Melbourne City to a W-League Premiership and Championship double in 2019-20 before joining up with former Melbourne City coach Joe Montemurro at Arsenal.

Catley missed Saturday’s 4-0 win over Spurs with a tight calf. Arseblog News will be speaking to Joe Montemurro on Wednesday afternoon and will seek clarification on whether she will be available for Thursday night’s FA Cup semi-final away at Manchester City. You can read our interview with Steph from earlier this month here.

Top class player and in the couple of games she has played for us already looks comfortable with WSL and in what she is asked to do.
Would probably be Arsenal skipper too if it wasn’t for Kim and Jordan already being here.

A few aussies in Arsenal WT? Didn’t know that. Great that they are doing well.

Well done Steph, especially given the competition.

Hope that that calf problem clears up soon so we can see you challenging for awards and trophies as an Arsenal player.

So we had three of the nominees! Well done, Steph Catley. Hope to see you owning that left flank soon.
