THE top performers for Reading FC Women this season have been honoured.

Goalkeeper Mary Earps was rewarded for an outstanding campaign between the sticks by being named Player of the Year.

The Nottingham-born England Under 23 stopper put in a string of eye-catching displays for the Royals to land the major award.

Lauren Bruton picked up the Players’ Player of the Year honour after an excellent season for the 23-year-old striker.

Luton-born Bruton was one of the most consistent performers for the Women’s Super League 1 side.

Becky Jane landed the Players’ Player of the Year trophy.

The 24-year-old ex-Chelsea defender was prominent for Kelly Chambers’ team and proved a big hit with Royals fans.

The talented trio received their awards on Sunday after Reading’s final match of the Super League season.

Sadly, they could not finish on a high note as Chambers’ side lost 1-0 at home to relegated Doncaster Belles at Adams Park in Wycombe.

Katrin Omarsdottir scored the only goal after 70 minutes to earn Belles their first win of the season.

Emma Follis went close for the hosts before Earps made a fine save to deny Emily Simpkins at the other end.

Earps also had to be at her best to thwart Christie Murray, but Doncaster went on to snatch the victory.

She said: “We are absolutely disappointed with the final result. It is definitely not the way we intended to finish the season.

“Over the course of the season we have picked up a lot of points and played some really good football, so to not finish well is disappointing for everyone.”
