Millie Bright – Defensive Rock: Player of the Season Nominations

Millie Bright has been an important member of our team and the England squad for many years. In recent seasons, she has grown into one of the best centre-backs in the Women’s Super League. That is why I’m nominating her as Chelsea Women’s Player of the Season 2021/22.

Millie Bright: Captain, Leader, Hero

During this season, Millie stepped up and became our captain for two months whilst Magda was out with an injury. During this time, Millie demonstrated her leadership abilities as well as what she had learned from previous and current captains.

Millie was very impressive in leading the team on the pitch during this time which meant that the team could keep up the success. The central defender is someone who will want to stay at Chelsea for a long time, so I can see her one-day becoming full captain.

Millie is effective in most defensive formations, but she has excelled this season in the back three with Aniek and Jess. This is a new formation for the team this season and Millie has adapted well and is consistently performing at a high level. Millie has a lot of power in her and she can make some pinpoint long-range passes. This has allowed the team to press forward more and some of these passes have provided great assists for crucial goals. These passes do not always go as planned, but it demonstrates the amount of power she possesses when striking a ball. 

Unsung Hero

Millie has had several POTM performances this season, both defensively and offensively. These performances have enabled us to keep clean sheets in crucial matches while also providing assists for the goals. Millie Bright has also come forward and played as an attacking player during one game, demonstrating her versatility on the pitch.
