Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Danni Maslin has scored off the field by winning the Footballer of the Year Award at the Bourne Corn Exchange on Friday night. She was also deemed a runner-up in the Sportswoman of the Year award.
The Regional Sports awards cover the geography of Peterborough to Sleaford (East to West) and Stamford to Spalding (North to South). The awards nights covers Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year, Sports Personality of the Year, Team of the Year, Junior Sportsman of the Year, Sporting School Achievement, Unsung Hero/Coach of the year and - in Daniella's category - the Footballer of the Year. Danni got through to the final three by a public vote and then was selected by panel of Judges. Danni beat off competition from Deeping goal machine Danny Matson and Bourne Town Player of the Year Tim Quy to become the eventual winner.
Danni travels to train and play with Nottingham Forest with a round trip of 80 miles from Rippingale nr Bourne, but her investment is paying off as she flourishes under the guidance of Forest Ladies' Goalkeeper Coaches Edd Yates and Dave Carr. As a young player, Danni has much ambition to further her international status and hopes to do this with Nottingham Forest as they currently ride high in the Northern Division and are striving to play in the National Division next season.
Darren Munton (ex pro-footballer) and one of the judges on the panel commented after the awards: "The standard of football being played by Daniella at Nottingham Forest is outstanding and Daniella is a credit to the local area and to Ladies Football. I hope with Daniella winning this award that it will further increase local girls' interest in the sport."
Forest Chairperson P.J Andrews said: "The club is thrilled for Danni to win this award especially as this has recognition outside of the county of Nottingham and additionally promotes the sport and, of course, Forest Ladies' profile.
"We are currently benefitting from an extended and committed Management, coaching and Physio team here at the Club including that of our Goalkeeper Coaches. Whilst it is generally the players that achieve recognition it should not go without notice that both Edd and Dave have invested a lot of time with Danni and our other goalkeepers. On behalf of the club I would like to congratulate Danni on her award and wish her continued success both on and off the field."
