Arsenal forward lands 2021-22 award after a memorable campaign with the Lionesses

Beth Mead has been voted the 2021-22 England Women’s Player of the Year connected by EE.

The forward was selected by fans as the stand-out player in a historic 12 months for the Lionesses, ahead of Leah Williamson and Keira Walsh in second and third respectively.

Mead enjoyed a spectacular season scoring 20 in 19 matches, breaking Jimmy Greaves’ longstanding record for the most goals in one season for England.

She played a central role in the summer’s EURO triumph featuring in all of England’s six games and was named player of the tournament and the competition’s top goal scorer with six goals and five assists.

Her many exploits led her to being nominated for the UEFA Player of the Year and also the Ballon D’Or Feminin, alongside her international teammates Lucy Bronze and Millie Bright.
