Blackburn Rovers Centre of Excellence celebrated their most successful ever season at their seventh annual Awards Evening.
Rovers have built an enviable reputation for producing talented female footballers over the past 12 months, during which time no fewer than eight players, past and present from the Centre, have received international recognition.
At league level, both the Under-10s and Under-16s vastly improved during the second half of the season, while the Under-14s went the entire campaign unbeaten and the Under-12s lost only one game in the North West. All four teams were rated within the top 12 fittest in the country.
To reward their achievements, all players were presented with prizes by Blackburn Rovers Ladies captain Denise Campbell and ex-Centre of Excellence star Rhiannon Roberts, who is hoping to make the Great Britain squad for this summer's World University Games in China.
Special merit awards were also presented within each age group, with the roll of honour as follows:
Special achievement awards were also presented to some of the Centre's top performing players.
Becky Palmieri was presented with a Long Service award, Helen Seed scooped an International Schools award, while Chloe Adams, Keira Walsh, Lorrie Doze, Millie Beaman and Jodie Mountain, who was also named Goalkeeper of the Year, received International Recognition awards.
However, the night's big winner was England Under-15 international Lorrie Doze, who received the Special Recognition Award for her rapid rise through the player pathway and impressive improvements for both club and country.
Centre director Matt Johnson said: "These achievements are just the tip of the iceberg and it's only everyone's commitment and quality, from coaching staff to players and parents, that has made the season the outstanding year it has become."
