Super Falcons of Nigeria defender Ashleigh Plumptre has emerged winner of the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) Community Award.

The 24-year-old was announced as the winner by the official Twitter account of the Leicester City Women's Football team.

The post came with a photo of Plumptre posing with the PFA Community award. The award for Plumptre comes the day after she celebrated her 24th birthday.

On Sunday, May 8, 2022 Plumptre celebrated her 24th birthday. Plumptre celebrated her birthday along with Super Falcons captain Onome Ebi who turned 39.

Plumptre had to take to the pitch on her birthday as her Leicester City side traveled to face Tottenham Hotspur Leicester City.
