Fara Williams captured the two biggest individual prizes at the FA National Women's Football Awards in London.
The Everton and England midfielder became the first player to be named as Players' Player of the Year and International Player of the Year after an outstanding season for both club and country. The other two nominated players for the Players' Player award were Arsenal's Jayne Ludlow and Rachel Williams of Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Toni Duggan was named as Young Player of the Year to give Everton a clean sweep of the individual awards, beating off competition from Leeds Carnegie winger Jess Clarke and Sunderland starlet Jordan Nobbs.
The Manager of the Year award was presented to Mick Mulhern of Sunderland, the third season in a row that it went to a manager from outside the top flight, in recognition of hime leading his side to the Northern Division title and the F.A.Women's Cup Final.
The biggest ovation was reserved for outgoing Arsenal manager Vic Akers, who was honoured with the FA Special Achievement Award for his contribution to the women's game which has seen him guide the Gunners to an unprecedented 32 trophies which includes 11 Premier League titles, 10 F.A.Women's Cup wins and the UEFA Women's Cup - a record which is unlikely to ever be challenged.
