Manchester City forward Lauren Hemp has been named PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year for the 2020/21 season.

The winger retains the trophy for a second successive campaign after an impressive showing for the Club, having also won it back in 2018 whilst with Bristol City.

One of City and England’s brightest stars and most influential attacking talents, the 20-year-old overcame an early-season injury to make 23 appearances in league and cup, scoring 10 goals.

Richly deserved award.

Hemp spoke about receiving the award-

“I can’t believe I’ve been awarded this accolade for a third time – it feels so special to be successful from an incredible shortlist.

“For me, this is one of the best awards to win as it’s chosen by my fellow professionals – it’s a real honour and I can’t thank them enough for voting for me.

“Since I first won it in 2018, I feel like I’ve improved so much – I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some amazing coaches in my career so far, but I know that I’m not the finished product yet and I’ll be continuing that hard work looking to the future to be the best that I can be.”

Congratulations Lauren!
