Glee for Ji at awards
 Women's Football News 16 Nov 2014
 
Chelsea's Ji So Yun has been named FA WSL 1 Players' Player of the Year at the FA Women's Football Awards. 
 
The awards, which are an annual event that celebrate the best of domestic women's football, were held on Friday evening at Madame Tussauds. The South Korean international was chosen by her fellow players ahead of Karen Carney (Birmingham City) and Jess Clarke (Notts County) after an impressive season at Chelsea, who finished second in FA WSL 1. Unfortunately she was unable to attend on the night but sent a video message of thanks.
 
Reading's Fran Kirby scooped the FA WSL 2 award, after enjoying a season where she scored 29 goals and earned regular call ups to Mark Sampson's England squad.
 
Toni Duggan won the goal of the season, in a fan-voted award, for her spectacular strike against Chelsea on the dramatic final day of the FA WSL 1 season. Birmingham City's Dave Parker, who saw his team finish a close third, won Manager of the Year.
 
In the FA Women's Premier League, Helen Mitchell was named manager of the year after leading her Sheffield FC team to a Northern Division and Premier League Cup double.
 
Title winning Liverpool were named FA WSL 1 club of the year and Yeovil Town won the FA WSL 2 award, whilst Sheffield FC scooped the FA WPL award.
 
The FAWPL Players' Player of the Year award for the respective divisions were presented to Charlton Athletic striker Sam Pittuck, who won the Southern Division award, whilst the Northern Division award went to Jodie Michalska - making a total of four trophies for Sheffield FC on the night.
 
The Love Football Play Football award, which celebrates work around grassroots participation, was won by Merseyrail. In the final award of the night, Derby County secretary Sheila Rollinson was recognised for her outstanding contribution to women's football.
 
Kelly Simmons, FA director of national game and women's football, said: "This has been another fantastic season of women's football and an evening like this really showcases how much quality there is across the leagues, from players to managers and the staff working behind-the-scenes.
 
"Introducing FA WSL 2, along with promotion and relegation between FA WSL 1, has really driven the competition forward as we saw on those particularly dramatic last days in both divisions.
 
"The formation new FA WPL is another important development for the women's game and there are now clear pathways for girls and women anywhere across the country to play at the highest level.
 
"There's a real excitement in the room ahead of next week's big England game against Germany, which is set to be a landmark occasion, and hopefully we'll see the impact of this across next season's football in terms of crowds and awareness."
