PFA award nominees announced
 Women's Football Events News - 16 Apr 2017
The Professional Football Association has announced which players have been nominated for the 2017 Womens' PFA Players' Player of the Year award, and also the Womens' PFA Young Player of the Year.
Four England players have been nominated for the Women's PFA Players' Player of the Year award, along with two Scotland internationals.
Chelsea striker Karen Carney, Birmingham City forward Ellen White and Manchester City duo Lucy Bronze and Jill Scott join Jane Ross and Caroline Weir, of Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, on the shortlist.
Bronze, Ross and Scott were both instrumental in Manchester City's double winning campaign which saw them win the FA WSL 1 title for the first time, as well as the Continental Tyres Cup. Carney helped Chelsea finish second in FA WSL 1 and reach the Final of the SSE Women's FA Cup, whilst 21-year-old Weir, the only player to be nominated for both awards, finished as top scorer for Liverpool and won the Supporters' Player of the Year award.
White, who was England's match winner against World Cup holders USA in the SheBelieves Cup last month, scored six goals in 14 games for former club Notts County.
Meanwhile, the six nominees for the Women's PFA Young Player of the Year award include five who have represented England at one level or another, along with Weir who is up for both awards.
Millie Bright had a fine first season with Chelsea after joining from Doncaster Rovers Belles and this resulted in her receiving her first senior England caps. Jess Carter enhanced her growing reputation at Birmingham City, culminating in her first call up to the senior squad this month.
The other three players are all at Champions Manchester City. Nikita Parris was another player to force her way into the England squad during the past year, Keira Walsh is one of the country's brightest young talents, playing an unsung role in her team's title success and UEFA Women's Champions League run, and Georgia Stanway who broke into the first team and scored a hat-trick in the WSL, as well as captaining England in the FIFA Under-17 Women's World Cup.
