It has been an incredible season for Arsenal, completing a clean sweep domestically; lifting The FA Women's Cup, The FA Women's Premier League Cup, astonishingly ending their FA Women's Premier League season with a perfect record of 22 wins from 22 games, and also becoming the first English side to win the UEFA Women's Cup.

Arsenal are the Club of the Year, Vic Akers takes the Tesco Manager of the Year award, Kelly Smith was also named Players' Player of the Year, while Lianne Sanderson is recognised as the leading goalscorer in the National Division with 28 goals.

For Fara Williams it marks a fantastic season on the international stage to take the International Player of the Year award, playing in ten of England's eleven games she has reached a landmark of 50 caps at the age of just 23.

At the heart of everything the Three Lions achieved this term, Fara scored a screamer against Scotland in March and forced Hoda Lattaf into scoring an own goal in the match that secured World Cup qualification.

Preston North End take the accolade for the best programme, while Lincoln City received the BBC Club Media Award. Sunderland's Stephanie Houghton has also been rewarded for her fine progress this term as The FA Young Player of the Year.

Linda Whitehead was also honoured for her contribution to the Women's game as she was awarded The FA Special Achievement prize.

Linda was pivotal in getting Women's Football up and running and has been playing her part for over 30 years, especially in 1993 when The FA took over the running of the Women's game.
