Spartans and Scotland striker Diana Barry picked up the Scottish Sun Players Player of the Year at an awards dinner at the National Stadium.
Diana's football career started at high school where she starred as a striker for St Augustine's High school in Edinburgh winning the Scottish Schools Cup on three occasions. While at high school, Diana joined Hibs Girls Under-17s where she played for three seasons from 2000 to 2003, winning two consecutive League titles, three League Cups, two West Cups and a Scottish Cup. She also represented her country at Scottish Schools Under-15s and Scotland Under-17 at National level. During this period Diana scored over 150 goals.
Diana moved to senior league football in 2003, playing for Whitehill where she helped them gain promotion to the Premier League. In 2005 she moved to Glasgow City where she was a Scottish Cup winner before returning to the Capital in 2006 to play for Edinburgh Ladies. In her first season she scored two goals in the Premier League Cup Final 4-1 win over Hibernian.
In 2008 Edinburgh Ladies became Spartans FC, and Diana's 40 goals helped Spartans to runners-up spot only two points behind winners Glasgow City. Under the Spartans banner, Diana has played a remarkable 66 out of 67 games, scoring 89 goals in the process. This season she broke her own record by scoring 43 Premier League goals.
Diana has been capped at all levels from Under-15s through to the Senior A squad and the award is a well deserved accolade from her fellow players around the country.
Her all round contribution to the game, prolific goal scoring exploits, dedication and phenomenal ability has already made her a Spartans legend with many more honours and accolades to follow. All at Spartans are absolutely delighted for Diana and her fantastic family and very, very proud of her.
