Arsenal picked up a number of awards at the ceremony:
Martin Odegaard – Premier League Player of the Year
Bukayo Saka – Young Player of the Year
Aaron Ramsdale – Goalkeeper of the Year
Mikel Arteta – Coach of the Year
Arsenal Women were nominated in a number of categories with Laura Weinroither, Beth Mead and captain Kim Little all receiving nominations
However, Arsenal Women were runners-up in a number of categories but in the women’s football awards were dominated by Chelsea duo Sam Kerr and Lauren James who won the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards respectively.
Well done to the Lionesses on receiving The Power of Football Award. After the Lionesses won the European Championship 2022 last summer, the impact on women’s football in the UK has been incredible. A number of Lionesses received MBE’s & OBE’s for their contribution to the Euro victory, including Arsenal’s Leah Williamson and Beth Mead, as did England Women’s Manager Sarina Wiegman who received a CBE.
The Lionesses now have the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 in their sights. The World Cup is being staged in Australia & New Zealand through July and August this year, with the Lionesses’ amongst the favourites!
