Rachel Daly wins Barclays WSL Player of the Season award!
Rachel Daly has been named the Barclays WSL’s Player of the Season to cap a simply phenomenal 2022/23 campaign.
Daly joined Aston Villa from Houston Dash last summer, weeks after the Lionesses’ triumph at the European Championships.
While the 31-year-old was deployed at left-back throughout the tournament, Rachel has proved to be a complete striker ever since putting pen-to-paper at Bodymoor Heath.
A brace in our opening game of the season against Manchester City was merely a sign of things to come, and the Harrogate-born forward now sits on 21 league goals heading into Saturday’s finale against Arsenal.
Rachel also proved adept at bringing her teammates into play as she’s added six league assists to her overall tally.
Our no.8 beat out competition from Ona Batlle, Leah Galton, Sam Kerr, Frida Maanum, Guro Reiten, Khadija Shaw and her own teammate Kirsty Hanson to scoop the award.
Congratulations on a magnificent achievement, Rachel!
