BARNSLEY-BORN footballer Bethany England’s dream season continued this week when she was named the PFA Women’s Player of the Year.
Bethany, who is from Kingstone and plays for Chelsea, finished as the club’s top scorer last term with 21 goals in 24 games.
The 26-year-old’s contribution was key in Chelsea’s double league and cup-winning campaign.
The England international has already been recognised by fans for her efforts and was named Chelsea Women’s Player of the Year, as well as the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Player of the Season, but this award is decided by the votes of fellow professionals
Bethany said: “I’m honoured, humbled and proud to receive this award. I can’t thank my teammates and staff at Chelsea enough for the unbelievable year we achieved together.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
