Lucy Bronze was named PFA Women's Player of the Year for a second time

Lucy Bronze was named the PFA Women’s Player of the Year following an impressive season with Manchester City.

The 25-year-old defender pipped club mates Jill Scott and Jane Ross, England colleagues Karen Carney and Ellen White and Liverpool attacker Caroline Weir in the vote by fellow players.

Bronze said: “As a defender, you don't really get a lot of accolades, but it's a great award to win.

“As a team, we've been very successful, and individuals have performed really well in the team.

“This award for me is all thanks to the team, because without them, I wouldn't be anywhere near this.”

Bronze played in every game, scoring twice, as City went unbeaten to win the FA WSL 1 title for the first time.

She then scored the winner against Birmingham City in the Continental Cup Final.

It is the second time Bronze has won the award following her success in 2014.

The England international was shortlisted for the 2016 FIFPro Women’s World XI and picked up the FA WSL 1 Player of the Year award at the 2016 FA Women’s Football Awards.

Meanwhile, Birmingham youngster Jessica Carter was voted the PFA Young Women’s Player of the Year.

Carter, 19, started every match in a breakthrough season for the Blues.

Bronze and Carter will go head-to-head in the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final when Manchester City take on Birmingham at Wembley on Saturday 13 May.
