Chapman wins award

Tuesday 7 May 2002

Fulham supporters have voted Katie Chapman as their Ladies Player of the Season.

Chapman took the honours, narrowly beating fellow FA Cup Final goal scorer Rachel Yankey. Marianne Pettersen who incredibly scored over 80 goals for Fulham Ladies finished a surprising third.

Speaking to Fulham Today, runner-up Rachel Yankey agreed with the fans' verdict.

"Katie deserves it, she's been a great player all season and her goal in the FA Cup Final was the perfect way to finish it off.

"I was surprised to come second, I don't think I've had such a good season but I'm glad the fans voted for me."
