Arsenal’s Beth Mead was voted The Football Supporter’s Federation Fan’s Player of the Year on Monday night.

More than 366,000 votes were cast what is described as the ‘largest supporter-led awards in the UK’ and Mead came out on top despite facing competition from Fran Kirby (Chelsea, runner-up), Remi Allen (Reading), Lucy Staniforth (Sunderland), Keira Walsh (Manchester City) and Ellen White (Birmingham).

Speaking about the award, Jen O’Neill, editor of She Kicks magazine, said, “Since signing for Arsenal, Beth has established herself as a firm favourite amongst the Gunners’ faithful – terrorising opposition full-backs with her pace and tenacity and turning goal-provider as well as goalscorer.”
