Alex Greenwood

Biography

The defender has the honour of being named the first captain of Manchester United Women.

Greenwood is a technically proficient left-back and is as comfortable defending as she is creating attacking opportunities for her team-mates. The England international made her senior debut for Everton in 2010, having signed for the club as an eight-year-old, and just two years later was named FA Young Player of the Year. In 2015 she moved to Notts County and then to Liverpool a year later. Greenwood was the youngest player selected for the 2015 World Cup and played two games as England secured a bronze medal. As well as being an expert full-back, Greenwood can operate in the centre of a back four and her precise free-kicks mean she is constant goal threat.
