Fara Williams has been selected as the FA WSL 1 Player of the Month for October.
Williams had a dream start to her Reading career, recording two goals in her first four league games helping keep The Royals in the FA WSL 1 top three at the end of October.
The accolade for Williams' comes after a string of impressive performances including an early goal of the season contender as she rifled home a 25-yard volley in the 3-0 victory over Liverpool.
Williams fought off tough competition from a shortlist including Chelsea defender, Magdalena Eriksson, and Manchester City's Jane Ross. Chelsea kept four clean sheets in the FA WSL 1 in September and October with new signing Eriksson playing a pivotal role in the team's defence. Ross found the net twice in the side's first two games of the season, dominated in midfield for Manchester City.
Presented with the FA WSL 1 Player of the Month award, Reading's Fara Williams said: "I feel I've performed well, as the whole team have. We've hit a really good vein of form and things are really starting to click as a squad and that's credit to Kelly, Phil and all the girls for working so hard in training, but yes for me I'm really happy to have helped the team pick up points in the last two months."
Millwall Lionesses captain Ashlee Hincks has won her first accolade of the season, winning Women's Super League 2 Player of the Month.
Hincks spoke of her delight after winning the player of the month award and said: "I'm really really happy, it's a huge honour to receive it. Massive credit has to go out to the whole team for where we are in the league and what position we're in, so credit goes to everyone."
In October, Hincks scored three goals in the league. Her first goal came away at Doncaster Rovers Belles, when she scored a last-minute equaliser to earn the Lionesses a massive point that day. She then continued her goalscoring form at home to Brighton & Hove Albion, when she scored the fourth goal in a seven-goal thriller. Her final goal of the month was from the penalty spot against London Bees which kept Millwall's unbeaten record intact.
Hincks spoke about her happiness with her overall performances over the month, telling the club's website: "I think if I look back at my performances over most games, I've scored goals which have been vital points in games now, whether they be the winner or the equaliser, so they've been huge moments in games. I'm more pleased with my all-round performance as well as the goals as they also have a massive help in games.
"Our relationship between staff and players is really tight. I think as a group we are a real collective, we're not just a one-man band as such. I think we've all pulled together and we're all pulling in the same direction which is why things are going the way they are on the pitch and we're finally getting the plaudits we deserve for a long time I think."
