Women's Football News
Natasha Dowie was crowned FA Players' Player of the Year at the FA Women's Football Awards which were held at The Brewery in London.
The Liverpool and England striker capped a remarkable few months for herself by landing the prestigious award after helping her club to a first ever FA WSL title. She also picked up the accolade of being the league's top goalscorer with 13 to her name - form which has also revived her international career.
To complete a good day for the Champions, Matt Beard carried off the Manager of the Year award for guiding the club to its greatest ever success.
Dawn Barnard, secretary of the Essex County Women's League and Essex County Girls League, was the winner of the Special Achievement Award for outstanding service to the women's game.
In a much lengthier ceremony but with fewer awards this time - no International player or Young player award was included - other winners included Bristol Academy, who won the Club of the Year award, and Steph Houghton's 25-yard strike against Lincoln Ladies for Arsenal won the vote for the Goal of the Year award.
The Premier League also received some recognition - Sunderland boss Mick Mulhern winning the league's Manager of the Year award for the third year in succession whilst Beth Mead, Jodie Michalska and Francesca Kirby were rewarded for finishing as divisional top goalscorers.
Gillian Coultard, the first England women's player to make 100 international appearances, was presented with a commemorative gold cap as was Alex Scott, after she reached the landmark during the Euro 2013 Finals.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the FA taking over the running of women's football, former WFA members Pat Gregory and Linda Whitehead were presented with a special Wembley Stone which will be placed by the Bobby Moore statue at Wembley Stadium.
