SHIPARD NAMED PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Midfielder Sally Shipard was named Canberra United Player of the Year at the club’s annual awards presentation held at Regatta Point, Canberra, on Sunday 13th February. Caitlin Cooper was named Player’s Player of the Year with Emily Van Egmond taking the Rising Star award.

Shipard was announced as the third recipient of the Canberra United Player of the Year of the award, following in the footsteps of Ellie Brush and Ellyse Perry, after a commanding series of displays at the heart of the Canberra United engine room throughout Season Three of the Westfield W-League. In her acceptance speech Shipard thanked the contribution of her team mates and stressed how much she enjoyed her football during season 2010/11.

Caitlin Cooper edged home in the Canberra United Player’s Player of the Year voting to claim the trophy which is voted on a 3-2-1 point’s basis by each squad member at the conclusion of the season. Cooper, who joined the club from Central Coast Mariners at the start of this season, formed a solid defensive partnership with Brush and was in excellent form throughout the year.

Young tyro Emily Van Egmond was named as the club’s Rising Star. This award recognizes a player under the age of 20 who excelled in the Westfield W-League during 2010/11. Van Egmond played in all bar one of United’s fixtures, created plenty of goals for others and netted one herself in the 4-1 home win over Newcastle Jets.

In other awards Sally Shipard made it a double by winning the 2XX Supporters Player of the Year trophy, whilst Ellyse Perry was awarded The Leprechauns Supporters Trophy.

The presentation also saw the release of the club’s unique Official Yearbook. The 68-page full-colour publication is available to supporters, priced $15, upon request from Canberra United Media Manager, Russ Gibbs, at media@capitalfootball.com.au

Yes, I agree with all the awards. thought Cooper was great at the back as was Brush. Shipard did well in the middle. Van Egmond is getting better, but has to stop disappearing on the field and play for a full 90 minutes. Leprechauns trophy?????

Hi all,

The Leprechauns Trophy is a supporters award given to the player of the year as voted by that particular group supporters. It's voted on by them and they present their award at the end of the season (much as certain EPL clubs have different Supporters Club Player of the Year trophies).

Similar in fact to the 2XX Nearpost Award which essentially is an award given by the volunteers who work on the Nearpost covering matches.

Capital Punishment, on this forum, were offered the chance at the start of the season to have a supporters award presented at the end of season presentation (see earlier threads) but declined to take part.

The opportunity is still there for season four should Capital Punishment wish to have a supporters award.

Thanks,

Canberra United FC
