When you are looking for players who have made an impact on their teams over the last season then Binfield Ladies young bundle of energy Kiah Owen is certainly one that ticks a lot of boxes.
The youngster – who has been nominated as Young Player of the Year at the EPC Bracknell Football Awards – made 22 appearances for the ladies side and made her mark straight away with a terrific debut in a pre season friendly win at Thames Valley Women’s League Premier Division side Wantage Town.
She went from strength to strength and even managed to score four times, all the while still making 11 appearances for the clubs under 18 side.
Here’s one of the nominations we received: “It was Kiah’s first season playing adult football having captained Binfield under 18s to a cup final last season. From the first moment she started pre season training to the final game of the season she worked hard, was committed and more than matched anyone she came up against – often just dusting herself down after a heavy challenge and getting on with it! She continued to play for the under 18s as well but made 22 appearances for Binfield Ladies playing left back, centre back and on the wing, scoring 4 goals in the process. She was a huge part of the teams improvement this season and deserves a little bit of recognition.”
