As undoubtedly one of the best footballers Jamaica has ever produced, Khadija “Bunny” Shaw continues to acquire accolades for her achievements in the sport and has been named in the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Barclays Women’s Super League (WSL) Team of the Year.
The annual award, which was staged on Tuesday night, is voted for by professionals from across England’s top divisions.
Shaw was named alongside fellow Manchester City W.F.C. members Alex Greenwood and Yui Hasegawa, as well as Manchester United’s Mary Earps and Maya Le Tissier, Chelsea’s Guro Reiten and Sam Kerr, Rafaelle Souza (Orlando Pride), Frida Maanum (Arsenal), Rachel Daly( Aston Villa), and Ona Batlle (FC Barcelona Femení).
The honour comes as a product of Shaw’s superb season on the field with Man City, netting 31 goals in 30 games to become the club’s highest-scoring women’s player in a single season. The 26-year-old scored 20 of her record-setting goals in league matches, as well as seven of her nine assists.
Shaw, who recently concluded her second World Cup campaign as captain of the Jamaica Reggae Girlz, was previously awarded the WSL Player of the Month, first in November 2022 and again this year in March.
