Durham Women defender Kathryn Hill has been named as the North East Football Writers’ Women’s Player of the Year.
The Scottish international has enjoyed a stellar twelve months at the heart of Lee Sanders’ defence, and was the overwhelming choice of the local football writers who voted for the recipient.
Hill will become the second Wildcat to win the award – after Beth Hepple was handed the honour last year.
The defender will be awarded with her trophy during a ceremony at the Ramside Hall Hotel on Sunday, February 2.
We’ll have full reaction from Kathryn later in the week.
Meanwhile the men’s award has been won by Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar – with the young player of the year going to teammate Sean Longstaff.
