Arsenal Ladies midfielder, Jordan Nobbs, has been named in the PFA FA WSL team of year.
The England vice-captain has been rewarded for another good season for club and country.
The team is as follows:

It is a very fair representation of the 2016 season with several Manchester City players as they finished the league unbeaten, plus all the individuals performed really well throughout the year.
The only questionable choice would be two centrebacks from City as players like Stoney (Arsenal) or Bonner (Liverpool) also performed well in 2016.
Mary Earps (Reading) started the season on the bench and, once she got hold of the no.1 shirt, quickly established herself in the side. She regularly made the England squad throughout the season. She is a very explosive goalkeeper with good reflexes and she’s commanding in her area.
Lucy Bronze (Man City) is one of the top three right-backs worldwide. She is consistent, reliable and brings a lot of quality on the defensive and attacking sides of her game.
Stephanie Houghton (Man City), the England skipper, has a commanding aura and her strong leadership quality is reflected by this vote.
Jennifer Beattie (Man City) the Scottish defender/midfielder played more games in midfield than at the back so it is a bit surprising to see her selected as a defender rather than as a midfielder.
Jess Carter (Birmingham) she had a fantastic season with Blues and his rightly been rewarded.
Jill Scott (Man City) another fantastic season for club and country for the box-to-box midfielder.
Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal ) is the same as Jill Scott. England are lucky to have two top quality number 8s at the top of their game.
Karen Carney (Chelsea ) was the playmaker was at the heart of all creative things for Chelsea in 2016 and also performed well with England.
Caroline Weir (Liverpool): the attacking midfielder had a strong season for the Reds and became a key player for them by getting more efficient in the final third with more assistists and goals than ever before/
Jane Ross (Man City) brought pace and goals to City, adding a new dimension to their team.
Eniola Aluko (Chelsea) was the FA WSL’s top goalscorer. Regardless of her technical level and other stuff that pushed her away from the England squad, such an achievement deserves to see her in the FA WSL team of the year.
