Rinsola Babajide named Liverpool Women player of the year

English youth international of Nigerian descent, Rinsola Babajide has been voted Liverpool Women Player of the year.

Rinsola was also the team top scorer as she beat two of her teammate to the award.

"The Reds forward claimed the accolade after a combined poll of supporters and members of our official former player's association, Forever Reds, with Melissa Lawley runner-up and Leighanne Robe in third," a statement on Liverpool's official website read.

"Babajide was Vicky Jepson's side's top scorer last term with eight goals in all competitions and recently signed a new contract to remain with LFC Women as they aim to secure an immediate return to the top flight in the coming campaign.

"That haul included four strikes in a single match when Blackburn Rovers Ladies were beaten 8-1 by the Reds in the Women's FA Cup in January."

"Lawley, who joined the club last summer, finished a narrow second to Babajide in our Player of the Season poll, while Robe came third after her second year on Merseyside."

She was part of the London Women’s football team in an unofficial game which ended 40-0 against the women’s football team of the University College, London.

At club level, she had previously played for Millwall Lionesses and Watford Ladies and currently with Liverpool ladies as she joined the fold in January 2018.
