Super Falcons’ Plumptre listed for PFA Fans award
Super Falcons defender Ashleigh Plumptre has once again been shortlisted for the February PFA Vertu Motors Fans’ Player of the Month award, following her outstanding performance for Leicester City.
Plumptre’s performance was impressive for Leicester in the two games they played in February against Birmingham City and West Ham United.
After starting the month with a crucial 2-1 win over the Blues at St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, LCFC Women doubled the month’s points tally with a dominating display against the Hammers at Pirelli Stadium.
The Super Falcons defender also helped Leicester City to back-to-back Barclays FA Women’s Super League victories for the first time in the club’s history. Those results lifted the Foxes two places in the standings.
Other candidates for the same recognition are Millie Bright (Chelsea), Jess Carter (Chelsea), Alex Greenwood (Manchester City), Ashleigh Neville (Tottenham) and Plumptre’s Leicester City team-mate Jemma Purfield.
