Who is Jill Scott?

Jill Louise Scott is an English female footballer. She is a central midfielder, currently playing for Manchester City and England women. The FIFA technical report into the 2011 Women's World Cup described Scott as one of England's four outstanding players; "[an] energetic, ball-winning midfielder who organises the team well, works hard at both ends of the pitch and can change her team's angle of attack."

At 5 ft 11ins tall, Scott is nicknamed "Crouchy" after male international footballer Peter Crouch. Since leaving home town club Sunderland for Everton in 2006, she contributed to the Blues' FA Women's Premier League Cup win in 2008 and FA Women's Cup victory in 2010.
