Crystal Palace’s Aimee Everett from Barrow named Women’s Player of the Season

A FOOTBALLER from Barrow has been named as the player of the season after a record-breaking campaign.

Aimee Everett has been named Crystal Palace Women’s Player of the Season 2021/22, sponsored by Facebank, it has been announced.

The Palace defender helped the team to their highest league finish of fourth by playing 25 times, more than any other player.

20-year-old Everett joined Palace from Leicester City in summer 2021, having won both the Women’s Championship and the Continental Tires League Cup with the Foxes.

She made an instant impact and became a regular immediately, shortlisted for the Women’s Championship Team of the Week in March after grabbing a deft, no-look assist for Molly Sharpe.

She was presented with her Player of the Season award by captain Annabel Johnson, and said at the Croydon Boxpark ceremony: “I’m absolutely over the moon, honestly. It’s a big achievement for me in my career.

“For me, it’s been a good individual season but an even better one with the girls. A record season. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of girls to do it with. They really are a special group.

“Next season, we want to top that fourth position and be looking to get promoted we think. Bring on next season!”

Other winners on the night include Tayo Adaramola and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, who scooped Under-18 and Under-23 Player of the Season respectively.
