Chelsea forward Fran Kirby has been voted the Footballer Writers’ Association’s Women’s Footballer of the Year.
The 27-year-old was the unanimous choice of a panel of more than 30 football writers who specialise in the women’s game.
Kirby has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season to help Chelsea Women win the league and also reach the final of the Women’s Champions League.
England international Kirby is the recipient of the award for the second time, having been presented with the inaugural FWA Women’s Footballer of the Year trophy in 2018.
Chelsea’s Australian striker Sam Kerr, the WSL’s Golden Boot winner with 21 goals, was second in the FWA vote, with Manchester City and England winger Chloe Kelly third.
