Kirby named Chelsea Women’s Player of the Year

Kirby continued her fine form on the European stage and finished as our Champions League top goalscorer with six goals in nine appearances.

The No.14 netted a brace in the opening game of our Champions League campaign against Benfica to become Chelsea Women’s all-time leading goalscorer.

Kirby, who joined from Reading in 2015, overtook former Chelsea forward Eni Aluko at the top of the goal scoring charts, and has now scored an impressive 90 goals in 134 appearances for the Blues.

She netted in the Continental League Cup final and also had a hand in our five other goals as Chelsea beat Bristol City 6-0 to retain our League Cup title.

In March, it was confirmed fans’ favourite Kirby is here to stay as she committed her future to the club.

Kirby signed a contract extension to keep her at the club until the summer of 2023, with the club having an option to extend for a further 12 months, and many Blues fans will be hoping for much more of the same from our Player of the Year over the coming years.
