Manchester City footballer, Lucy Bronze has been nominated for the England Woman’s Player of the Year 2014 which closes on New Year’s Day.

The Alnwick star has been nominated by the FA for her performance for the England team over the past 12 months.

The FA said: ‘“Bronze really cemented her place in England’s starting 11 over the past 12 months.

“The defender had only made five appearances at the start of 2014, but as we head into the World Cup year she has now earned 16 caps.

“Bronze has turned out across the back four for her country but it is in the heart of defence, alongside Steph Houghton, that she really impressed the FA.”

Its been a great year for Bronze as she netted her first international goals and helped England keep clean sheets in seven of her 11 caps.

The award was designed by the FA to recongise the talent in men’s and women’s football from their fans.

Voting is open to anyone but you must have an England Supporters Club profile which takes two seconds to set up.
