Vote for United Women’s April Player of the Month

Wednesday 03 May 2023 15:30

The vote is now open to decide Manchester United Women’s Player of the Month for April.

You can now choose between Ona Batlle, Leah Galton and Rachel Williams in our official poll, after all three made standout contributions during a perfect month for Marc Skinner’s side.

The Reds recorded a big win away to Brighton in the WSL before overcoming the Seagulls again to set up a historic first-ever appearance in the Women’s FA Cup final at Wembley.

Narrow - and important - league successes at home to Arsenal and away to Aston Villa followed, ensuring we occupy top spot in the table at the start of May. 

Batlle, Galton and Williams all played their part across those outings, and in turn, each make a strong case for our latest award…

Batlle now has 15 assists to her name across all competitions in 2022/23.

The right-back’s remarkable campaign to date continued in the season’s penultimate month, and, as a result, our no.2 has been nominated for this prize for the third time since January’s inception. As well as playing her part in helping United to keep shutouts in the WSL wins over Arsenal and Brighton, Batlle took her assists tally to 15 for the campaign, setting up two more goals in April. Both of which came at crucial times, and were actually converted by fellow nominee Galton, to get the Reds back level in eventual triumphs over Brighton (FA Cup) and Aston Villa.

Our no.11 could become the first Red to win the accolade for a second time, following her success in February, off the back of another imposing month on United’s left flank. Galton made her presence known across the back-to-back clashes with Brighton, netting twice in the 4-0 league victory away to the south-coast outfit. That was before expertly turning home the leveller in the FA Cup last-four clash with the Seagulls that the Reds would memorably go on to win 3-2.
Galton was at her best for United across April.

Williams is becoming a bigger fans' favourite among the United faithful with every passing game, and her contributions in April included a moment that will live long in the memory for many supporters. Coming off the bench to make an impact, as she so often has done this season, the 35-year-old netted an 89th-minute winner to send United to the Women’s FA Cup final for the first time in our history. That goal came a fortnight after our no.28 again made a telling influence as a second-half substitute, heading home the third of our goals in the league win away to the Seagulls, to all-but clinch an important three points on that occasion. 
Rach's semi-final winner is a moment we won't forget in a hurry!

The voting is now open, and you can choose between Batlle, Galton and Williams via our poll below. We will announce the winner on Saturday. 

Good luck to all three nominees!
