Lotte Wubben-Moy has won the Barclays FA Women’s Super League player of the month for March. 

Wubben-Moy was pivotal in the Gunners keeping three clean-sheets in the month against Birmingham City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. 

The defender also scored the second against Manchester United in a huge game in the race for the final Champions league spot as she met a Katie McCabe corner to rise highest and head into the net. 

This season in total Wubben-Moy has made 17 appearances in all competitions for Joe Montemurro's side helping them keep 9 clean-sheets in the process. 

She is the third Arsenal player to win the player of the month award this season with Jill Roord and Vivianne Miedema winning the award in September and October respectively.

What makes Wubben-Moy's achievement even more impressive is that she kept the three clean-sheets in what was a makeshift centre-back partnership alongside Lia Wälti with Leah Williamson and Jennifer Beattie out injured. 

Montemurro has trusted the defender fully in her first full season in the WSL as she has played against Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United starting the games that had the most pressure on the Gunners.
