Galton named United Women’s Player of the Month

Galton’s April win means she becomes the first United Women player to win the fan’s vote for a second time. 

And it comes as no surprise, given her knack of supplying big goals when the Reds have needed them most. 

Our no.11 found the back of the net four times across the month, the first of which came during our trip to the south coast where we faced Brighton in the Barclays Women’s Super League. 

After just 12 minutes, she opened the scoring, heading home from Katie Zelem’s expertly delivered corner kick. Though Brighton made life difficult for Marc Skinner’s side, it was Galton who once again struck to double our lead, rounding goalkeeper Lydia Williams and slotting in from a tight angle. 

Her much-needed second after the hour opened the floodgates for United, with second-half substitutes Williams and Lucia Garcia scoring late on to seal a 4-0 win on the road.
