Durham Women FC are delighted to announce Megan Borthwick as the first winner of the club’s new Player of the Month prize – awarded in association with Cooper Durham BMW and MINI.
The new award is the next step in the blossoming partnership between the FA Women’s Championship side and the high-profile brand with Cooper Durham having now agreed to become the official partner of the club’s new Player of the Month – which will be awarded to a standout performer in each month until the end of the current campaign.
As part of the partnership, Cooper Durham will provide each winner with a fantastic ‘BMW Driving Experience’, giving players the chance to experience the fantastic range of vehicles on offer at Cooper Durham’s showroom – based in Belmont.
And the first winner of the prize is stopper Borthwick, who enjoyed a stellar January.
She conceded just twice in three games, making a string of fine saves to help the Wildcats to a 1-0 victory over a resurgent Leicester City, while also starring as Durham took top tier Bristol City to extra time in the FA Cup.
Speaking after landing the award, Borthwick said: “I’m over the moon.
“As a goalkeeper you never expect to win player of the month, especially with ten great players in front of you, and to win the first one and get a Z4 for the weekend – I’m absolutely buzzing.”
Borthwick was presented with her award by Richard Skinner, Head of Business at Cooper Durham – and you can watch her full reaction in the video above.
