This summer, Jill Scott is leaving Manchester City, ending an illustrious eight-and-a-half-year spell in charge of the girl’s Tremendous League. Jill Scott is set to play in the forthcoming UEFA Women’s Euros; she is leaving the club at the end of her contract. England midfielder Jill Scott is set to leave Manchester City when her contract ends this summer, the women’s super league club has announced. With Jill Scott’s plans in place for the future, Scott is set for the new season away from Man City and, hopefully, a successful Euro Summer for England.
After four consecutive years of finishing runners-up in the WSL, another summer of staff changes has seen Manchester City enter the domestic campaign with genuine hopes for success. Bristol City finished fifth in their inaugural FA WSL season, going from strength to strength thanks to the additions of England internationals Karen Bardsley, Jill Scott and Steph Houghton. She will indeed be honoured for her efforts to the football club at a yet-to-be-confirmed Manchester City Women’s home game next season, with supporters set to be able to express their thanks to our No.8 with a unique gift.
In fact, four of these trophies – including the League – were won during Manchester City’s 2006-07 season, which saw history being made, as they became the first women’s football club to do so. We did a triple that year, but, to Jill Scott, I would be waiting for a championship to be won for so long, so finally getting the chance to do that was incredible, and I hope that in future opportunities arise. Jill Scott rejoined Manchester City in late 2013 from Everton, having spent seven years at Everton, and continues to establish herself as one of many accomplished midfielders around the League. She rapidly became a fan favourite not just among her colleagues but also among the club’s supporters, thanks to her outgoing and larger-than-life attitude.
Jill Scott continued with numerous trophies at both Everton Ladies and City and has enjoyed success at the international level for England. England midfielder Jill Scott signed with City before their first season as a professional outfit in 2014, having left Everton, and has gone on to make nearly 200 appearances for the academy-based stadium-based outfit, helping them to a WSL title in 2016, three FA Cups, and three League Cups. England midfielder Jill Scott is part of the Lionesses’ preliminary squad for the Home Europeans this summer.
Birmingham will likely have trouble keeping pace with teams in the Championship this season. However, Birmingham lost plenty of talent over the summer to other clubs — the most significant loss being Aoife Mannion, who moved to Manchester City.
