Jordan Nobbs surgery update

Jordan Nobbs

Jordan Nobbs underwent a successful operation on Monday to repair an ACL rupture in her left knee. 

She now begins her recovery process with the support of specialist care, but sadly her injury rules her out of the Women’s World Cup next summer. 

England head coach Phil Neville said:  “We are all wishing Jordan a speedy recovery and will be supporting her every step of the way throughout her rehabilitation process. 

“She is an invaluable member of the Lionesses squad and played a huge part in helping us secure our place at next summer’s Women’s World Cup finals in France.   

“Naturally we are disappointed that a player of Jordan’s ability and importance will not be able to take part in the World Cup, but the priority is that she returns to full fitness and can look forward to many exciting years ahead playing for both her club and country.”

Everyone at the club will be supporting Jordan through her recovery.

Beth Mead voted FSF Women’s Player of the Year

Beth Mead

Beth Mead was named Women’s Player of the Year at the Football Supporters Federation Awards on Monday night.

With more than 366,000 votes cast, the FSF Awards are the largest supporter-led awards in the UK - and Mead topped the poll despite facing stiff competition.

She has scored three goals and assisted six times in the Women’s Super League this season, in addition to scoring twice on her full international debut for England in September.

“Since signing for Arsenal, Beth has established herself as a firm favourite amongst the Gunners’ faithful - terrorising opposition full backs with her pace and tenacity and turning goal-provider as well as goalscorer,” said Jen O’Neil, editor of She Kicks magazine. 

Chelsea’s Fran Kirby finished as runner-up, while Remi Allen (Reading), Lucy Staniforth (Sunderland), Keira Walsh (Manchester City) and Ellen White (Birmingham) completed the shortlist.
