Three Arsenal and two Chelsea players have been nominated for the FA Women's Super League Player of the Year award at the London Football Awards next month.
Vivianne Miedema, Jennifer Beattie and Leah Williamson are the Arsenal players up for the award, which will be a part of the ceremony on 27th April, whilst Chelsea's nominated duo are Fran Kirby and Pernille Harder.
Angela Addison of Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea's Niamh Charles and Malin Gut of Arsenal are the three players who are the nominations for the Women's Young Player of the Year award.
The London Football Awards are the first official football awards of the year, and have revealed that Roy Hodgson will be honoured with the Outstanding Contribution accolade. Entering its seventh year, the awards ceremony will take place on 27th April 2021 and will raise crucial funds for Willow - the only UK charity creating Special Days for seriously ill young adults aged 16-40. This year's awards will be fully virtual and immersive, streamed directly to you.
Currently in his 46th season as a coach and manager, Hodgson is a very worthy winner having coached and managed teams all over the world in a long and illustrious career. Roy managed fellow London club Fulham, towards its best ever finish of seventh in the Premier League and took them to the final of the Europa League. Later he reached his proudest achievement of leading his country to a World Cup and two European Championship Finals, as England manager.
Following his time with England, Roy was appointed manager of Crystal Palace in September 2017 following a poor start to their season and retained the club's Premier League status despite them having their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign. Since then the club has been ever-present in the top flight of English football under Hodgson's management.
Presenters on the night include former professional footballer and television presenter Alex Scott MBE. The former Arsenal captain, who also made 140 appearances for England, is now a regular pundit on both BBC Sport and Sky Sports across both men and women's football.
Alex commented: "Being a ‘Londoner' I am super excited to be involved in this year's London Football Awards, recognising some of the best footballing talents and football-based projects from around the capital."
Set up by Arsenal goalkeeping legend Bob Wilson OBE and his wife Megs, the London Football Awards honour all aspects of the game, from Manager of the Year and Young Player of the Year, through to Women's Player of the Year, and many more. Past winners have included Andros Townsend, Arsene Wenger, Frank Lampard, Les Ferdinand, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min, Tammy Abraham, Ben Foster, Ollie Watkins, Ian Wright, Vivianne Miedema, Ryan Sessegnon, amongst many others. The awards are independently judged by an expert panel from the world of football.
Bob Wilson, Willow Co-Founder and Life President, added: "Outstanding contribution to London Football is one the biggest Awards on the night and we are absolutely thrilled to be honouring Roy who has contributed so much to the game in a career spanning 50 years. He has been a successful manager for Crystal Palace since 2017, turning their fortune around and earning them a steady place in the Premier League."
The London Football Awards founded by Willow - the only national charity working with seriously ill 16-40-year-olds to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days, was founded by Bob Wilson OBE and his wife Megs. This year Willow marks its 21st anniversary and to date, has provided more than 17,000 Special Days to young adults living with a range of life-threatening conditions including cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, and Huntington's disease.
