Bath City Women End of Season Awards

Bath City Women’s firsts and development teams held their End of Season Awards presentation last night.

Seven different players received nine awards in recognition for their successes across the last eight months.

The first team’s Players’ Player of the Season was Mils Bellotti. The centre-back excelled in her first full campaign which saw her play in all 18 games game and score four goals, while being part a side which contained just 21 goals, the second best defensive record in the league behind champions Poole Town Ladies.

Libby Goater won the Golden Boot with eight goals in 16 outings. She also claimed the Supporters’ Player of the Season in a stand-out debut year.

Manager’s Player of the Season was awarded to Ashley Harris. The hard-working Welsh midfielder overcame a knee injury in November to be a vital cog in the centre of the park.

Jasmine Rennie collected two awards for the Development side. Having also featured fleetingly for the firsts, the youngster was a regular two divisions below, where her progress was recognised with the Most Improved Player accolade.

Rennie’s 16 goals in 16 games saw her pip Ceris Evans to Golden Boot. Evans was named Supporters’ Player of the Season, the former full-back moved to attack where she chipped in with 15 goals in a promotion season.

Esme Fensome continued her development with the Manager’s Player of the Season trophy, a year after being named Most Improved for the firsts. The 17-year-old recorded 10 goals in 20 outings.

Liv Davis’ impressive form in midfield was recognised by her peers as she claimed the Players’ Player of the Season award for the Development side. She was one of three ever presents for the Development – Fensome and Evans the others.

Both teams will begin their 2024/25 campaigns in September. The firsts will continue to play at Twerton Park with the Development remaining at Peasedown St John.
