These awards are a major sign of the improvements that the head coach has brought to the club since being appointed in the summer. They held a one hundred percent winning record this month.
McCabe also was a big reason for their success, helping them to win two games. The Irishwoman was nominated for the monthly award along with teammates Kim Little and Lotte Wubben-Moy. The WSL also nominated Manchester United’s Hannah Blundell and Ella Toone as well as Chelsea’s Fran Kirby.
McCabe scored three goals and got three assists in five matches this year. The 26-year-old has also played a big part in Arsenal’s Champions League run so far. They sit in second place behind Barcelona after two games.
