Staniforth and Galloway pick up supporter awards
SAFC Ladies' captain Lucy Staniforth picked up the Sunderland AFC Supporters Branches award for Player of the Season, whilst youngster Bridget Galloway picked up the award for Young Player of the Season.
Their male counterparts John O'Shea and Joel Asoro picked up the respective awards for the lads.
Lucy Stanifroth said of receiving the award " I'm really pleased & grateful to have been named Supporters Player of the Season last night. Your support is important to us & hopefully we can finish off the season well for you! I'm really pleased for Bridget on winning the YPOTY too, she has worked hard and made good progress this season". She further commented "knowing that the Supporters Branches of Sunderland AFC have voted for us and include us in the awards show how much women's football is changing. It's always great to be part of this event and to be able to mix with the fans on such an informal basis."
The awards which were held at the Stadium of Light are an annual event ran by Sunderland AFC's Supporter Branch Liaison and are a great opportunity for fans to get up close to their idols.
