Missy Bo Kearns is having herself quite a season. The young midfielder has established herself as a regular, either as a starter or coming off the bench, for both Vicky Jepson and Amber Whiteley this season.
The local Academy product has now won the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for the third month running. In March, she got herself on the scoresheet in all three games her team played in the month. She provided assists in wins against Crystal Palace and Coventry United. She also put the ball in the back of the net in a draw against Blackburn Rovers.
“It’s great to win the award again,” said the young Scouser.
“When I won the previous one, the plan was to keep kicking on – and that’s what I’ve tried to do. Hopefully it shows that the fans can see all the hard work I’m putting in. When you’re an attacking midfielder, I think it’s goals and assists that people notice, so hopefully I’ve managed that. Amber said to me that I’d been involved in four of the seven goals in the month, so that was good to hear.”
Kearns, who turns 20 on Wednesday, how proven to contribute in a variety of ways. She has shown to have great timing on her runs from midfield, can pick a pass, and is fantastic on set pieces.
Missy Bo Kearns SHOULD be the centerpiece of their rebuild, especially since there seems to be irreconcilable differences between the club and the talented Rinsola Babajide. Unfortunately, Liverpool FC have shown themselves quite happy to let their best talent from the Women’s team walk out the door to be picked up by top sides. Hopefully, whoever the next permanent manager is can keep Kearns invested in staying with the squad as they hunt for promotion next season.
