Ellie Carpenter makes French Team of the Season

Ellie Carpenter has capped off her first full season at Olympique Lyonnais with a spot in the team of the season. 

Matildas June Friendlies

One of four Lyon players in the team, Carpenter made her mark in her 18 appearances in the Division 1 Féminine. 

The right back was critical to Lyon having the second stingiest defence in the league behind champions, PSG. 

Carpenter wasn't just a strong defensive player but contributed going forward, even scoring a goal against Bordeaux early on in the season. 


She also featured among the nominees for Young Player of the Year but was beaten by PSG's Sandy Baltimore. 

The 21-year-old has finished her club commitments and is now in Sweden preparing for the Westfield Matildas two friendlies in June.
