Top PFA award for City star Izzy
MACCLESFIELDBORN Izzy Christiansen has revealed her delight after she was named PFA Women’s Player of the Year.
The Manchester City midfielder scored six goals in 14 appearances in the Women’s Super League last season, helping the team secure a secondplaced finish and earn Champions League qualification.
Christiansen was a former student at Tytherington School in Macclesfield, and she has paid tribute to those who have helped her reach this stage of her career.
“I’m extremely proud and it still hasn’t sunk in yet. I’m delighted to have won such a prestigious award and I want to thank everyone that’s helped me get to where I am,” she said.
“This is just the start of my career and hopefully I can go on to win more things. I’ve always said there that is no better accolade than being recognised by your teammates.
“This is the icing on top of the cake for my career and I feel extremely honoured to be given this award in such a fantastic era for women’s football.”
Christiansen has also been capped at international level for England, and scored her first goal for her country during the 8-0 victory over Estonia back in September 2015.
