Nigerian defender Ashleigh Plumptre has won the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Community Award.

The 24-year-old was announced as the winner on the official Twitter account of the Leicester City Women’s Football team.

Along with a photo of Plumptre, the statement on the Twitter account said, “Our @PFA Community Champion for 2021/22.”

Plumptre won the award a day after her 24th birthday. Her latest appearance for the club had also come on her birthday, which was the match between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur Women’s football team.

Plumptre and her teammates lost 1-0 to the North London side.

Plumptre was in action for the entire 90 minutes of the game.

Even with the loss, Leicester City was able to avoid relegation as they finished second from the bottom to Birmingham City.

With the Football Association Women’s Super League (WSL) season over, and Chelsea Women confirmed sixth-time winners, the Super Falcons defender is also up for the PFA Fans award.

Plumptre is expected to be included in the Super Falcons squad for the upcoming 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) slated to take place in July in Morocco.
