Gemma Bonner has been honored with her second Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for January by Liverpool FC Women. This accolade comes as she clinched the trophy in November as well, making her a standout performer for the team. Bonner’s consistent and stellar performances on the field have not gone unnoticed by supporters.
The Reds centre-back stood out in all three matches during the month by playing the full 90 minutes and notably scoring a critical late winner at Bristol City in the Adobe Women's FA Cup. This victory was particularly remarkable as Liverpool FC Women had to battle with 10 players following Ceri Holland‘s dismissal.
Bonner expressed her gratitude for the award, highlighting the special bond between the fans and the team. She credited the unwavering support of the Liverpool FC Women supporters, acknowledging their tremendous influence on the players during matches. Their encouragement resonates on the field, making every game feel like a home fixture for the team.
The victory over Bristol City was a defining moment of the month for Bonner and her teammates. Despite facing challenges, the team managed to secure a hard-fought win, showcasing their determination and resilience. Bonner emphasized the team’s fighting spirit and collective attitude as key strengths that have propelled them forward in challenging times.
Looking ahead, Liverpool FC Women are gearing up for the Women's FA Cup fifth round clash against London City Lionesses. The team enters the fixture with renewed optimism following a morale-boosting stoppage-time equalizer in their recent Barclays Women's Super League game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Bonner reflected on the Spurs match, acknowledging the improvements in performance and expressing confidence in the team’s capabilities. With the FA Cup presenting a significant opportunity for success, Bonner emphasized the team’s ambition to make a mark in the prestigious competition and potentially reach the final at Wembley.
