Glasgow City vice captain Leanne Ross led her team out for their Scottish Women's Premier League match on Sunday, not only to help marshal her side to a 3-0 victory over Celtic, but also to start her 100th Premier League match for the club.
Leanne first joined City back in July 2007 and since then has won six League titles, three League Cups and three Scottish Cups. She has played every position in a City shirt with the exception of goalkeeper and only six other City players, past and present, have ever started more games for the club.
Captaining the side this season due to the absence of Rachel Corsie through injury, Leanne is a true leader and will without doubt be one of the most revered players ever to wear the City orange.
Speaking of her achievement, Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: "Considering the women's league only plays 20-22 matches then it really shows a remarkable consistency to be selected that often at this club in just under six years. Leanne is mentally very strong and tactically aware, so much so she has filled in a number of areas for us throughout her time here.
"It takes a strong character to play in a team where the demands are so high. There are also a lot of big personalities in this dressing room and the environment can swallow you up if you are not performing. Therefore it's to her immense credit that she continues to reach new landmarks at this stage of her career.
"Her goal ratio has been well documented in the past, but it is worth mentioning again as 118 goals in 99 starts, playing in several positions with huge competition for places, really is incredible. There is no doubt in my mind that Leanne will finish her career here and can genuinely regard herself as a City great."
