Reserve, Academy and Ladies Players Of The Season

Reserve, Academy and Ladies Players Of The Season

Kieran Agard is Everton's Reserve Player of the Season.

The 19-year-old striker has been a regular for the Blues second string this term, notching on two occasions.

He's also made several appearances on the first team bench this season.

Since arriving from Arsenal as a 16-year old, Agard has been prolific - first for the Under-18 side and then for Andy Holden's reserves.

He won the Academy's Keith Tamlin award last season and has continued his development this term.

Agard told evertonTV: "It's been a good season for me, I've played quite a bit for the reserves and to be on the bench for the first team was amazing."

Afterwards, James McCarten was announced as Academy Player of the Season.

The 18-year-old had already received the prestigous Keith Tamlin award at the 2008/09 Academy Awards, for his contribution to the Academy both on and off the pitch.

The central defender's progression at the Club was recognised when he signed a professional deal with the Club in October 2008, having joined the Blues' Academy as a young boy. McCarten now features regularly in Everton's reserve team. 

The Netherton-born man admitted he was shocked to be handed the most highly-regarded award of the evening at the Academy Awards last week, and will be even more delighted to receive further regonition through his progress.

He told evertonTV: "It was a surprise to win the first one and this one was the same. It's been good getting into the reserves and working with Taff (Andy Holden) and Alan Stubbs has been really good for me."

It's been a dramatic season for Everton Ladies and Fara Williams was named as their outstanding performer.

Williams has featured heavily for the Blues throughout the 2008/09 campaign, and has earned great praise from manager Mo Marley, who hailed her talent as 'world class'. 

The Everton Ladies' captain is renowned for her outstanding pace and agility, and has appeared on the score sheet constantly throughout the campaign.

Williams is also recognised for her outstanding techical ability and free-kick prowess.

Highlights of her season include a memorable hat-trick against Fulham in April, which saw the England international score directly from one of her trade-mark set pieces.

Williams has also continued her involvement in the England senior squad, scoring England's first goal in the Cyprus Cup in March, which the Three Lions went on to win.

Fara said: "I'm pleased to get the award but it's for the team really. We have proved we are one of the top teams and we want to win silverware next season."
