Melbourne City FC duo Jamie Maclaren and Curtis Good join Adelaide United’s Craig Goodwin as the A-League nominees for the LUCRF Super PFA Player of the Month for March.

The trio have been revealed by the PFA Nominations committee – a panel of former players and leading media figures – with the winner to be voted on by A-League players. Check out the nominees below.


Jamie Maclaren – Melbourne City FC 

In a month where City snared five wins from its five outings and scored 17 goals, Jamie Maclaren was at his prolific best, scoring six times in his five appearances.

The Socceroo commenced the month in fine form, netting a brace in City’s 2-0 win over Western Sydney Wanderers, before scoring another double in a 3-0 win over Macarthur and netting in the 6-0 Melbourne Derby drubbing of Victory.

His other goal came in a decisive 2-0 win over Central Coast Mariners as City established themselves as genuine title contenders during a successful month for Patrick Kisnorbo’s outfit.

Curtis Good – Melbourne City FC

While City were emphatic up front through Maclaren, they were also extremely effective in defence with centre-back Curtis Good’s form fundamental to City’s lean defensive record in March.

The former Newcastle United, Bradford City and Dundee United defender has been a critical cog in city’s back four, helping the Melbourne side concede just once in March’s five outings.

Craig Goodwin – Adelaide United

Since returning to Adelaide United from Saudia Arabian Pro League side Al-Wheda, Goodwin made an immediate impact for his hometown club. 

Goodwin’s contributions in March included the winning goal against Newcastle Jets in his first match at Cooper Stadium in almost two years, before the 29-year-old scored the decisive goal in a 1-0 triumph over last year’s Champions, Sydney FC. During a month where the Reds won all four fixtures, Goodwin also contributed two assists for the South Australian side.


As announced on the eve of the 2021 W-League Grand Final, Kyra Cooney-Cross was not only was named the captain of the PFA’s W-League Team of the Season, receiving the highest number of votes from her peers, but also was named the PFA’s W-League Player of the Month for March.

Cooney-Cross earned the Player of the Month accolade ahead of fellow March nominees Emily Gielnik (Brisbane Roar), before the forward’s move to Vittsjo GIK, and Sydney FC’s Premiership captain, Teresa Polias.
