Earps named United Women’s Player of the Month

Perhaps the most special moment of her January came in the game against Reading. A frustrating afternoon in front of goal for us concluded with Rachel Williams’s excellent strike in the closing moments, snatching all three points and propelling us to the top of the WSL table. 

And our no.27 more than played her part in that, performing excellently on multiple occasions to keep the hosts at bay. The pick of the saves came in the lead up to the final 10 minutes when Justine Vanhaevermaet’s glancing header from a free-kick forced Earps into a fine save at full stretch to deny an almost certain goal. 

Another solid display at the back meant we have now picked up a staggering eight clean sheets in 11 Women’s Super League games this season. For Earps, it marked her 50th in the competition – making her the division’s all-time leader and the first keeper in WSL history to reach that milestone.
