Monday 27 May 2002

After a season of success, Fulham's Katie Chapman finished her campaign by winning the Nationwide International Player of the Year award.

Chapman won the award after topping the vote from members of the International football staff who work with all the England Women's and girls teams.

As one of the goal scorers in Fulham's 2-0 FA Cup Final victory over Doncaster Belles, Chapman was also voted Fulham's Ladies Player of the Year as her performances in the defensive midfield role helped power the Ladies to a season of unprecedented success.
