Mead was named 2022 Sportswoman of the Year

England and Arsenal striker Beth Mead has been voted InNewCL Sports Personality of the Year 2022.

Mead played at Euro 2022 this summer where she helped the Lionesses to glory at Wembley Stadium, England’s first-ever major women’s football trophy.

The 27-year-old is the first footballer to receive this award.

In a public vote, England Test captain Ben Stokes finished second and Eve Muirhead, who led Team GB to curling gold at the Winter Olympics, finished third.

Athlete Jake Wightman, seven-time world snooker champion Ronnie O’Sullivan and gymnast Jessica Gadirova were also shortlisted for the award.

“I’m speechless for once,” Mead said.

“I’m incredibly honored to win this award. I couldn’t have done it without the girls. The team supported me. Yes, I won this award, I scored a few goals but I wouldn’t have done it.” managed without her,” she added.

“This is on the right track for women’s sport and women’s sport. Let’s keep pushing the girls, let’s keep doing what’s right.”

Mead’s outstanding performances at Euro 2022 resulted in her being named Player of the Tournament and winning the Golden Boot with six goals and five assists.

Mead also won Sports Personality Team of the Year alongside her Lionesses team-mates, while England head coach Sarina Wiegman was named Coach of the Year.

The awards are the latest in a long list this year, which has already seen Mead named Arsenal’s 2021/22 Player of the Season, finished runners-up in the Ballon d’Or Feminin and won the InNewCL’s Player of the Year award.

Her international goal tally for the 2021–22 season was 20 goals in 19 games, breaking Jimmy Greaves’ long-standing record for most English goals in a season.

Mead’s incredible year to remember

Being left out of the Team GB squad for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics makes Mead’s achievement all the more remarkable.

She scored in four of England’s six games at the European Championships, including a hat-trick against Norway in the group stage, which saw her lead Germany’s Alex Popp to the Golden Boot.

She also helped England qualify for next year’s World Cup with a 100 per cent record and not conceding a single goal.

The European Championship was the first major trophy for the Lionesses and the first for an England senior team since the men won the 1966 World Cup.

Domestically, Mead was in superb form for her club Arsenal ahead of the tournament, scoring 14 goals and providing 19 assists in 40 games in the 2021-22 season as the Gunners came tantalizingly close to a first women’s Super League title since 2019, but finished second to Chelsea by one point.

Mead’s 2022/23 season was similarly productive but was cut short after she sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Manchester United in November, threatening her hopes of playing in next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
