W-League: Crummer nominated for Young Player of the Month

Melbourne City FC would like to congratulate Larissa Crummer as the October nominee for the Westfield W-League NAB Young Footballer of the Year 2015/16 Award.

Having recently moved south from Brisbane Roar FC to Melbourne City FC, Crummer has started the Westfield W-League 2015/16 in scintillating form, scoring four goals from the two matches that she has played in so far.

Crummer spoke of her elation to be the first player ever to be named the monthly nominee for the award, thanking coach Joe Montemurro and her teammates for their support.

“It’s great. It’s an honour,” Crummer said.

“I’d like to thank Melbourne City, Joe [Montemurro] and all the girls for pushing me and hopefully I can keep doing better.”

"I've been really happy with my start and especially the team's start to the season; the highlights for me would be winning three matches out of three and playing and training with players of such high calibre, and, of course, scoring four goals."

After scoring twice against Sydney FC in Round One, the Matilda then returned from international duty two weeks later to net her second brace of the season against reigning premiers Perth Glory.

The 19-year-old is currently placed first in the Westfield W-League’s goal scoring standings.
