Wales skipper named Australia's W-League player of the year

Wales Women captain Jess Fishlock has won two awards for her Melbourne Victory efforts in Australia's W-League. The 27 year old was named player of the year in Australia's top flight by the nation's Football Media Association (FMA).

And she was also voted players' player of the year by her peers.

Fishlock, who is currently playing for Seattle Reign, described the awards as a "huge honour".

The inaugural FMA award in 2013 went to Sydney FC's Samantha Kerr, leaving Fishlock as the first non-Australian to win it.
