Yet another trophy for Beth Mead – BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year 2022

Arsenal & Lioness star Beth Mead is BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year 2022! By Michelle

Beth Mead has won the 2022 BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year award!

Whilst posing for the official Arsenal Women’s team photo, Beth was surprised by ex-England teammate Ellen White, who presented her with the trophy.  Arsenal’s official team photographer was on hand at London Colney to capture the whole Arsenal squad’s reaction, which you can see below.

Beth has had a fantastic year for both Arsenal and England’s Lionesses.  She was deemed the top candidate over Chelsea striker Sam Kerr, Wolfburg attacker Alexandra Popp, Lyon captain Wendie Renard and Barcelona’s Alexia Putellas (who won the Ballon d’Or Feminin 2022, where Beth came in 2nd by only one point).

The prize is voted for by fans and has been running since 2015.  Fellow Gunners Captain Kim Little and Beth’s partner Vivianne Miedema have previously won the BBC Footballer of the year prize.

2022 really has been Beth’s year after England’s Lionesses won the European Championships in the summer and Beth was awarded the Player of the Tournament and the Golden Boot accolades.

You can meet Beth at The Armoury at Emirates Stadium soon, as she is doing a book signing of her new book Lioness: My journey to glory.

Congratulations to our MEADOOOOOO!  Fully deserved young lady!

  1. Beath Mead the BBC woman footballer of the year, who’s been very vocal about Qatar and it’s homosexuality laws.well,in an interview with the Guardian to promote her book(yesterday).said that the lack of diversity (minor ethnicity/skin colour)in the England women team was just coincidental,yes just a coincidence??as I said recently,she is very vocal about LGBT rights because it concerns her,but the lack of opportunities for people of minor ethnicities & skin colour doesn’t seem to bother to much,it is just a coincidence.i mean the ignorance and hypocrisy is astounding!!!

    1. Pat are you going to delete that one too? I’m only asking because I already posted one on this thread and it’s gone.
