Jill Scott

City on Scott:

Jill Scott was the first of two England internationals to have made the move from Merseyside to Manchester in the winter of 2013.

Having made more than 70 appearances at international level, the capture of the central midfielder was made a top priority by Nick Cushing.

He lauded Scott's calibre and upon completing the signing, sounded assured the acquisition of the ex-Everton captain would immeasurably boost the squad’s aspirations for the coming season - and it did.

At 26, Scott brought a wealth of experience to a City side benefitted no end from her defensive capabilities and eye for goal. She played a key role in England Women’s 2011 and 2014 World Cup [qualifying] campaigns. 

She also represented Great Britain at the London Olympics before clinching a bronze medal with the Lionesses at the 2015 World Cup in Canada.

The box-to-box midfielder began her career at hometown club Sunderland before signing for Everton in 2006. Signing for City eight years later, Scott conceded to being impressed by the professionalism at City Women.

She's no stranger to silverware, having won the Women’s FA Cup in 2010 and the League Cup in 2008. She hoped to add to that collection during her stay with City and did so with the Continental Cup trophy in October 2014.

Scott extended her stay at the club in 2015 and delighted the Blues will be playing Champions League football next season, hopes to win the league title in 2016.
