W-League: Tabain named PFA W-League Player of the Month

Melbourne City Women’s FC forward Marianna Tabain has been named Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) Westfield W-League Player of the Month for October.

The 22-year-old has been a standout in the final third for Joe Montemurro’s side since crossing over from Perth Glory, scoring in each of Melbourne City Women’s FC’s four fixtures and contributing with three assists.

Currently sitting second on the Westfield W-League’s goal scorer standings – second to teammate Larissa Crummer - the forward also won a crucial penalty against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park in Round 2.
