#FAWSL 2 March gong for Belles’ Jess Sigsworth

Doncaster Rovers Belles’ Jess Sigsworth has been selected as the FA WSL 2 Player of the Month for March.

Sigsworth ensured her side made it nine league wins in a row in the FA WSL 2 after two impressive performances this month. Netting in both games, Sigsworth maintained her status as leading goal scorer in the division with strikes to defeat both Watford and Tottenham Hotspur as her side maintained the top of the division.

Sigsworth had some tough competition from a competitive shortlist including Brighton & Hove midfielder Chloe Peplow and Aston Villa’s Alice Hassall. Peplow has been influential in midfield this season and helped her side confidently win their fixture scoring an early goal against Sheffield F.C. Full back Alice Hassall was impressive in Aston Villa’s 3-0 win over Watford as they ended a run of four straight league defeats.

The FA WSL Player of the Month award celebrates the best players in FA WSL 1, FA WSL 2 and FA WSL Continental Tyres Cup. Each month, three players are shortlisted based on their performances before a media panel selects a winner for each division.

Presented with the FA WSL 2 Player of the Month award, Doncaster Rovers Belles’ Jess Sigsworth said, “I’m very happy with how I’ve performed in March but football is a team sport so without the great squad, staff and the girls in my team putting them on a plate for me every week to score it wouldn’t be possible. My most memorable moment last month was my goal against Tottenham but also our team performance against Watford. It was some of the best football we’ve played all season.”

Fans are able to get their FA WSL fix with a selection of live games on BT Sport, BBC Online and The FA’s WSL Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FAWSL/) as well as live commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live.
