by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton Ladies defender Alex Greenwood has won the FA Young Player of the Year award.

The 19-year-old collected the prize at the FA Women's Football Awards at London's Waldorf Hilton hotel on Friday.

The award, decided by Three Lions coaches and back room staff, recognises exciting young international-quality talent.

Greenwood, a left-sided defender, has represented England at age-group levels right up to Under-23s.

During the 2012 WSL season she became a regular Blues squad member.

She told evertontv: "I am made up to win the award. It was really unexpected and I'm delighted to get it.

"It has been a bit of a breakthrough season for me and the hard work has already begun for next season."

Ladies assistant boss Andy Spence added: "I am delighted for Alex. She epitomises everything we look for iin young players coming through."
