It’s award time again. While the cups and league trophies are being decided, and Sent Her Forward compiles its ever-lengthening shortlist for its own end-of-season honours, clubs around the country are beginning to dish out their own gongs to players, coaches and support staff after another eventful season in women’s and girls’ football.

Sent Her Forward is happy to help publicise these achievements and will list as many as possible here.

If you want your club’s awards to be added to this page, please let me know the names, categories and details of the awards where it’s not obvious. And if you can spare a photo or two, feel free to send those, too – with the permission and details of the copyright-holder.
