Jamaican starlet and Manchester City striker Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw continue her relentless quest to conquer professional women’s football with yet another record under her belt.
With two goals in a thrilling 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, the Jamaican has registered 26 goals in 22 games for Manchester City, breaking its record for the most goals scored by a female player in a single campaign.
To celebrate the achievement Shaw took to social media and stated, “Thank you. I’m honored to continue making history for this amazing club.”
Nikita Parris had previously held the record she achieved during the 2018/19 season when City took home the domestic cup double, with Nikita Parris scoring 24 goals. Among the famous names on the list of distinguished female footballers is Pauline Bremer, who scored 22 goals in 2019/20 and Lauren Hemp, who scored 21 goals in 2021/22, in third and fourth position, respectively.
Bunny Shaw has destroyed those records by a considerable margin and still has a few games left in her season to separate herself from Nikita Parris’s tally. She is also well on the way to claiming the WSL golden boot to cap off her brilliant season.
For Manchester City, she has scored 45 goals in 51 appearances, an average of 0.88 strikes per game. In just 22 games this season, the forward has scored 26 goals, an average of 1.18 per game.
