The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett, and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to Aston Villa Women for their performance against West Ham United Women on Sunday the 19thof November.
Aston Villa manager, Carla Ward, will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
Aston Villa Women won a third consecutive game in dramatic fashion on Sunday, beating West Ham United 3-2 at Chigwell Construction Stadium. Villa fell behind in the first half when Viviane Asseyi converted from the penalty spot but responded immediately through Anna Patten.
Adriana Leon put the visitors ahead with her first goal for the club before Lisa Evans equalised spectacularly with 10 minutes remaining. But there was still time for Rachel Daly to score a sublime, left-footed half-volley on 92 minutes to give Villa all three points.
