PFA Women's Footballer of the Year 2010 - Servet Uzunlar
PFA Women's Footballer of the Year Medal
Cheryl Salisbury's achievements in the game stand alone. In a career of many highlights that included 151 internationals and almost 40 goals as a central defender, she led Australia's women's team (the Matildas) to the quarter finals of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup, at Olympic Football tournaments and was regularly selected for the FIFA World Xl.
Cheryl's off field influence is just as impressive with her leadership and commitment to women's football leaving a legacy for our next generation of female stars. Cheryl's determination to succeed in what was a challenging environment for her sport is something that we can all draw inspiration from. She also played a key role in ensuring that Australia's elite women footballers cam under the umbrella of the PFA.
All female PFA members now vote annually on a 3, 2, 1 basis to determine the best female footballer of the year. The winner receives a golden medal featuring Cheryl's image.
Matilda's central defender Servet Uzunlar, a number 5 like Cheryl, became the inaugural PFA Women's Footballer of the Year in 2010 when voted the best player by her peers following the Matildas' histoic victory at the 2010 AFC Women's Asian Cup.
