Lionesses supporters can now vote for their 2016 Vauxhall England Women’s Player of the Year and England Women’s Young Player of the Year.

Four players have made the cut: Chelsea forward Karen Carney, Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs and Manchester City duo Steph Houghton and Jill Scott.

The Young Player of the Year shortlist is comprised of Chelsea’s Millie Bright, Arsenal’s Danielle Carter, Liverpool’s Alex Greenwood and Manchester City’s Nikita Parris.

Supporters can place their vote on the Vauxhall website until 5pm on Monday 31 October.

The winners will be announced at The FA Women’s Football Awards which take place at Wembley Stadium on Friday 18 November.

The awards celebrate the best of international and domestic football, which includes player, manager and club achievements across The FA Women’s Super League (WSL) and FA Women’s Premier League (WPL).

Women’s and girls’ grassroots football will be recognised with a We Can Play category and there will also be an Outstanding Contribution to Women’s Football award.

England secured qualification to next summer’s Euros with an unbeaten record, scoring 32 goals and conceding just once. They will find out their tournament opponents on Tuesday 8 November when the draw takes place in Rotterdam.

FA director of football participation and development Kelly Simmons said: “It has been another great year for the England team, qualifying for next summer’s Euros in such impressive fashion.

“There has also been excellent work taking place at grassroots level, not least with the fantastic numbers we’ve seen taking part in the two FA Girls’ Football Weeks with more than 130,000 females getting involved.

“We’re looking forward to the awards, celebrating achievements on the pitch and recognising all the hard work that is taking place off the pitch to keep pushing the women’s game on.”

England’s next home game is against France, the third best team in the world, at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster on Friday 21 October (8pm KO).

The match marks the start of the Lionesses’ preparations for the Euros.

Tickets are still available priced £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children.

A family ticket priced £15 (two adults and two children) is also available and group booking and Charter Standard discounts apply.
