Birmingham City striker Rachel Williams has been voted as the 2011 Players' Player of the Year at the FA Women's Football Awards at the HAC in London.
Rachel netted 14 goals - which also earned the FA WSL Top Goalscorer award - as well as a further four to spearhead Birmingham's title challenge which saw the club narrowly miss out on a first major trophy.
Jill Scott carried off the International Player of the Year trophy after a year in which the Everton midfielder starred in the FIFA Women's World Cup, scoring twice before being named in the All Star team following the tournament.
It was also a good day for Bristol Academy defender Jemma Rose who was named as Young Player of the Year as well as winning the Goal of the Year award for her strike against Doncaster Rovers Belles at the Keepmoat Stadium. Jemma's team mate Siobhan Chamberlain won Save of the Year for a stop against Liverpool and Bristol Academy were announced as Club of the Year.
Laura Harvey was rewarded for leading Arsenal to the 'treble' with the FA WSL Coach of the Year award and the FA Women's Premier League version went to Sunderland's title winning manager Mick Mulhern.
The Special Achievement Award was presented to Fay Glover for her many years of service with Nottingham Forest whilst Hope Powell was recognised with a presentation for breaking Sir Walter Winterbottom's record as England's most capped manager. Rachel Yankey and Kelly Smith were honoured for passing 100 appearances for England with a special golden cap.
