Award is for whole team - Toni

Award is for whole team - Toni - 31 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsToni Duggan was presented with the Young Player of the Year award at the FA Women's Football Awards and dedicated it to her Everton and England team mates.
"It's an amazing achievement but its not just on my behalf, but the whole team," she told Women's Soccer Scene. "The girls from England have been magnificent and I wouldn't have got to the World Cup without them - it's not just about individuals.
"Also, the girls at Everton have been fantastic and helped me to settle in so this award has got to be for the whole team I have been a part of.
"I would also like to thank the manager Mo Marley, she's been brilliant for me all season. She has always been there for me and helped me out.
"Personally, I've just got to take it all in and move on from here. At the end of the day, I've still not won anything at Everton and that's what my aim is this season. Team awards are much better than individual awards and I think that's what I have got to aim for now."
The award crowns a good first full season in the Everton first team for Toni but is no consolation for their 1-0 defeat by Arsenal in the last game of the campaign, which won the title for the Gunners. "Obviously I am delighted to get the award but it doesn't make up for the Arsenal game," she admits. "I would love to win the league and would sacrifice the award for that. I think we'll bounce back next year - it's been disappointing but we've got to move on from there and I think we're going to come back bigger and stronger."
Toni also came to prominence during the FIFA Under-20 World Cup Finals in Chile and had a great tournament, which included spectacular goals against the hosts and New Zealand, the latter being an injury time equaliser to take England through to the quarter finals. "There are no better memories than the World Cup, playing against better players," she says. "You want to keep testing yourself all the time.
"The Chile experience was really amazing and makes you more eager and hungry for success."
Toni was not the only Everton player to be honoured at the awards, captain Fara Williams being named as Players' Player of the Year and International Player of the Year and the winger was quick to pay tribute to her team mate: "Fara is a brilliant player and everyone knows that, both at club level and internationally. She is consistent throughout and I am made up for her that she has won these awards, because she deserves them."
