Women's Football News
Wales captain Jessica Fishlock has been voted as the FAW Women's Player of the Year for the second year in a row at the annual FAW awards.
The 25-year-old midfielder was the inaugural winner of the award last year, when women's awards were presented for the first time, and she received the trophy once again at the award ceremony in Cardiff this week.
Liverpool striker Hannah Keryakoplis was the recipient of the FAW Young Player of the Year award. The 18-year-old became a regular in the senior squad over the past 12 months but is also expected to spearhead the Under-19 attack when they host the UEFA Under-19 Championships next year and scored four goals in their last friendly against Estonia.
The Women's Club Player of the Year went to Nadia Lawrence, now of Cardiff City Ladies. The midfielder played a crucial role in helping Cardiff Metropolitan Ladies (then known as UWIC) win the Welsh Premier Women's League title for the first time and play in the UEFA Women's Champions League. She also won her first senior cap against Belgium two months ago.
The three women's football awards were added to the FAW awards night last year and reflect what has been a very good year for the women's game in Wales.
The senior team came very close to achieving a play-off place in their UEFA Women's Championship qualifying group whilst the Under-19s reached the Second Qualifying Phase of their respective championships.
