​Liverpool Ladies midfielder Caroline Weir was last night named Women’s Player of the Year for 2017 at the North West Football Awards.

Liverpool Ladies midfielder Caroline Weir was last night named Women’s Player of the Year for 2017 at the North West Football Awards.

The 22-year-old was named the winner after a fantastic year for club and country with the Reds number 10 being top scorer for Scott Rogers’ side before starring for Scotland Women in the 2017 UEFA Women’s European Championships in Netherlands despite their early exit.

Attacking midfielder Weir beat off stiff competition from England international Lucy Bronze, Everton Ladies defender Gabby George and Chester Ladies full back Jamie-Lee McDowell to pick up the prestigious award at Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire County Cricket Club.

On picking up the award, Weir said: “It is a real honour to have been named 2017 Women’s Player of the Year at the North West Football Awards. I would like to thank my teammates with Liverpool Ladies and Scotland Women for helping me to win this award as without them, winning individual awards such as this wouldn’t be possible.

“To beat off competition from Lucy, Gabby and Jamie-Lee, who all enjoyed fantastic seasons for their respective clubs, makes it extra special and highlights how much of a privilege it is to have won this award.”
