Thu 14 October 2021 | 11:59

The Women’s Super League Player of the Month title for September was given to the England international.

Beth Mead

has pulled off an astonishing performance this season, meeting the back of the net three times and providing three assists, helping

Arsenal

’s league challenge start on the right track with five victories in five matches.

She scored two goals in their 3-2 victory over

Chelsea

in the first game of the season and netted another in their Thumping 4-0 win over

Reading

.

The 26-year-old has also made her way to the scoresheet on the international duty with England last month, finding the target in their 8-0 win over North Macedonia in the World Cup qualifier for women.

Mead has played in all the club’s games this season and had to beat some of the most in-form nominees to be named the Player of the Month.

Aston Villa's Remi Allen, Brighton’s Inessa Kaagman, Chelsea duo Sam Kerr and Fran Kirby, Arsenal Viv Miedema, and Tottenham's Shelina Zadorsky were also in the list of women.

Mead told Sky Sports News:

"Thank you for everyone who voted for me, I am honoured and these are the types of awards that you want to be winning individually.

"I think I'm refreshed, obviously there was the disappointment of not going to the Olympics and I had the time off to find myself and my football again.

"I had my head on in pre-season I wanted to get my fitness levels up. I know I've got the ability to do things on the pitch but I needed to get my head screwed back on and came into this season feeling really good.

"I'm enjoying my football and that's been showing."

Mead has also revealed that the signing of Tobin Heath and Nikita Parris and the competition for the forward position has helped her improve her own performance.

"

The strength in depth that we have is incredible,"

she added.

"The last few seasons we haven't had that and we've been unlucky with injuries… for me it's been the best thing possible.

"A bit of competition has made me kick into another gear, I know that in training I've got to be doing the best possible things on the pitch and the competitiveness in training is a joke right now, but for me individually it's made me better."
