Jodie earns award after Cup heroics
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 9 Mar 2019
FA Women's Cup News - Jodie earns award after Cup heroics - 9 Mar 2019 - Women's Football NewsJodie Hutton sounded a humble note after her stunning hat-trick against Sheffield United earned the Aston Villa starlet the SSE Women's FA Cup Player of the Round award.
The 18-year old notched a 17-minute treble as she inspired her side to come back from 3-1 down against Sheffield United to advance to the final eight.
They needed penalties to progress but that only provided the Leicester native to cap off a heroic shift, scoring the winning spot kick in what will go down as an historic victory for her side.
It also proved enough for the teen to bag the Player of the Round gong, surprised by the club's coaching team and manager - as well as men's assistant coach John Terry.
"It means so much - not just for me, but for the club as well. It gets the club out on the market - people will look up to Villa and want to play for us," said Hutton.
"I wasn't sure if I would win it. There were a few other great performances from other games as well. I'm just happy I got it in the end!"
Hutton, who spent the last week training with the England Under-18 setup, remains Villa's top scorer with nine goals in all competitions.
The player showed maturity beyond her years as she took the game by the scruff of the neck as Villa went 2-0 and 3-1 down across the afternoon. It looked as though that would be curtains until Hutton slotted home to halve the deficit before United looked to have killed the game off in the 84th minute.
But two strikes at the death, including the final kick of the match, forced the game into extra time.
"When it got to 3-1, everyone thought Sheffield would coast through to the next round, but the end result shows this team never gives up till the final whistle," Hutton added.
"When I stepped up for the final penalty, I put everything to one side and tried not to think about it. I just took the penalty like I would in any other game."
This Villa side, who currently sit seventh in the FA Women's Championship, are considered a long term project by boss Gemma Davies, with results secondary to player development.
The Villains now have a cup quarter final against Super League outfit West Ham United and have significantly improved their league form since December, with Hutton believing this game was the result of the team's strong collective mentality and hard work on the training pitch.
She added: "We treat every training session like it's a game, and every game like it's a final. The whole team gives 110%.
"We won't think about what league they're in - we just know we have to win the game. It doesn't matter how good they are, we'll just execute our game plan.
"We could definitely win the cup - but we'll just take it one game at a time."
As the energy behind women's football, SSE's ambition is to support girls of all ages in England, helping them join in football from grassroots to the elite level. For more information on SSE's sponsorships and activities visit sse.co.uk.
