Melbourne City FC’s 2020/21 Westfield W-League season has officially come to a conclusion, with the Player of the Year night held on Friday.
Goalkeeper Teagan Micah took out the top honours as City’s Player of the Year, while a host of others were also recognised on the night.
Player of the Year
Having joined City as one of the Club’s biggest signings prior to this season, Micah wasted no time in making her mark.
She was named Player of the Match in City’s season-opening draw in Brisbane, pulling off a sensational eight saves to keep a clean sheet in her first match for her new Club.
Micah continued to grow as the season progressed and pulled off spectacular saves seemingly on a weekly basis.
She would go on to make 33 saves for the season at an average of over four per game, the best rate of any keeper in the league.
Unfortunately her season was cut short due to a knee injury but nonetheless, she was still a deserved winner of City’s 2020/21 Player of the Year.
After coming over from Brisbane and appearing 11 times for the Roar over the last couple of seasons, Leah Davidson made her mark in her first season at City.
A key member of the City midfield, she started in every match of the season and was as reliable at is gets in the middle of the park each and every game.
We saw the goals spread out pretty evenly this season with Jenna McCormick, Chinatsu Kira and Rhali Dobson just a few of the names that were able to find the back of the net throughout the season.
Alex Chidiac found the back of the net more than any other player though; scoring in our Derby win, home loss to Brisbane and getting the sealer against Perth in our final match of the season.
Players’ Player of the Year
With this award being voted on by the squad, there is no doubt Alex Chidiac is much loved across the playing group.
She may not have been with the group right from the start of the season, but there’s no doubt she was a massive addition once she did arrive in January.
Chidiac added plenty of experience to the group after arriving from Spain, and after a previous stint with the team a few seasons back where she won the double – she was welcomed back into the Club with open arms.
After her later arrival she would go on to play 10 matches, starting in all but her first when she played just days after coming out of hotel quarantine.
