Former Arsenal forward’s first season at Leicester City – In numbers

Leicester City manager Jonathan Morgan completed the signing of an exciting young player last summer in Paige Bailey-Gayle who is very much one to watch in the future.

The 18-year-old left Arsenal last summer and is already beginning to make a name for herself in the FA Women’s Championship with her new club.

FA Women’s Super League Full-Time take a look at the facts and figures behind Bailey-Gayle’s first season at Farley Way as we summarise her season in numbers.

17 – Upon signing for Leicester City, Bailey-Gayle was handed the number 17 shirt.

1008 – Bailey-Gayle has played 1008 minutes of FA Women’s Championship football with Leicester City this season, that’s 908 more on-field minutes than she was given at Arsenal last term.

4 – The striker has netted four goals in the FA Women’s Championship so far this season, that’s the same goal return as another former Arsenal colleague in Lachante Paul.

11 – Bailey-Gayle has started 11 of her 14 league games for Leicester City this season. She hasn’t been named a substitute in the FA Women’s Championship since September.

3 – Three of the youngster’s last five appearances in the FA Women’s Championship have seen the player get her name on the scoresheet.

115 – Bailey-Gayle scored a 115th-minute winning goal as Leicester City made history by defeating top flight side Reading 2-1 in the Women’s FA Cup fifth round at Farley Way in February. She had also scored The Foxes’ goal in normal time to force the additional 30 minutes.

89 – Leicester City boss Morgan gave Bailey-Gayle just 89 minutes of football across the club’s five fixtures in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup, the player is yet to score a goal in that competition.

69 – Bailey-Gayle made her Leicester City debut as she came on as a 69th-minute substitute in the 5-1 home defeat to Durham on the opening day of the FA Women’s Championship season.

Should the FA Women’s Championship season be brought to a conclusion in the coming days, Bailey-Gayle will have ended her first season with Leicester City having scored seven goals in just 19 appearances in all competitions.
