England’s Jill Scott: we’d like a rest but want Women’s Super League to benefit
The bronze medallists have had little time to recover from their World Cup exploits but ‘Crouchy’ and co want the interest to reach the domestic season
It is nothing against Peter Crouch but Jill Scott wonders whether the dressing room nickname she has carried for the past decade could do with a little updating. “That goes back to about 2005 – ‘Crouchy,’” she says. “I can’t shake it off. When I was at Everton I got ‘Fellaini’ as well; I think it’s just whoever is a tall midfielder or striker. I might have to try and go with ‘Harry Kane’ next.”
In truth, the England women’s team have written their own names in history over the past month and there is certainly no pigeonholing Scott, who at almost 6ft was an unorthodox presence in what was generally an advanced right-sided role during the World Cup. Normality will strike on Sunday: Scott is likely to revert to her favoured central-midfield position for her club, Manchester City, when they play Birmingham City as the Women’s Super League resumes to the highest pitch of interest in its five-year history.
