Jill Roord wins WSL September player of the month award

Arsenal midfielder Jill Roord has been voted as the FAWSL’s September Player of the Month. The Gunners star beat off competition from teammate Vivianne Miedema, as well as Manchester United’s Kirsty Hanson, Everton’s Izzy Christiansen and Brighton goalkeeper Megan Walsh.

Roord has opened the season in sensational form, scoring hat-tricks in both of Arsenal’s opening WSL fixtures- one against Reading in a 6-1 victory and the other against West Ham in a 9-1 drubbing. Jill also scored the winner for Netherlands against Russia during the international break. Unfortunately, she also picked up a slight knee injury in that game and has missed the last few games.
