England’s Mary Earps wins yet another Sportswomen of the Year award

Man United and England superstar Mary Earps continues to win prestigious awards, and her mantelpiece may soon need more space.

On Thursday night in London, she was honored with the Sportswomen of the Year award at the British Sports Journalism Awards, triumphing over heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson and England cricket star Tammy Beaumont.

This recognition marks the latest in a series of individual awards for the accomplished Lionesses’ goalkeeper in a stellar year.

During England’s remarkable journey to the World Cup final this summer, Mary Earps’ standout performances earned her the title of the tournament’s Golden Glove winner.

The awards continued to pour in, with the keeper adding the Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year and the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year awards to her collection. These honors complemented The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper prize, which Earps had received in February.

Mary Earps has transformed into a global star capable of selling out shirts almost instantly. However, this incredible run of success appeared improbable merely three years ago when former England manager Phil Neville excluded her, leading her to contemplate retirement.

The turning point came with Sarina Wiegman’s appointment in 2021, which revitalized Earps’ international career. Both player and coach have since benefited from the goalkeeper’s renewed confidence, yielding significant rewards.
