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.
The Reds put up a great fight, leading twice in extra-time with Alex Greenwood's pen and an own goal, before bowing out to top-flight opposition. Report to follow.
"I played with Casey at club and country level. The amount I learned from her during that time was unbelievable and for her to be my manager now is very exciting."
“It is an honour to captain this team and I am so proud. What a talented team I can say I captain! When Casey told me I got quite emotional about it but I am so ready for this challenge."
“I have many personal goals. I want to achieve things I haven't done yet. For the team, it is ultimately to go back to the WSL1 and then we will take it from there. It’s going to be exciting.”
“I will be an honest captain, I give honest feedback and I expect it back. I am a young but mature player. I work hard and I back myself with my technical ability. I am confident in myself."
"Dropping down a league, people might think it is going backwards but it is nothing but forwards for me to lead Manchester United to what could be greatness.”
