It’s been quite a season for Ascot United Ladies from potentially dropping down a level to promotion contenders in the Southern Region Women’s League Division 1.
United top the table by four points at the time of writing and could well win the title depending on results from promotion rivals New Milton Town’s final two games.
A huge part in the Yellawomen’s rise from finishing second bottom at the end of 2015/16 has been the emergence of young forward Amy Woollard who has scored 17 league goals in 17 appearances – only five fewer than the whole United side in 15/16.
Alongside strike partner Lucy Holzman-Clark (herself scoring 16 league goals), Woollard has given herself a shot at the golden boot – currently leading the standings by two goals from Milton’s Olivia Jones who still has two matches to play.
All this despite it only being her first season in adult football.
Amy has been nominated for the FiB Bracknell Football Awards ‘Young Player of the Year’ by three people who have made submissions to us, here’s what they had to say:
Submission 1: Amazing season in the SRWFL and scoring the most goals within the Season. A hardworking team player.

Submission 3: Still only 16 Amy has played her first season at Senior football. Playing in the SRWFL she has finished Ascot United Ladies top scorer with 18 goals and is currently the Leagues leading scorer. Amy has improved her game as the season progressed working hard in training and also hired a coach for 1 to 1 training to work on fitness and her game in her own time.
