AWFC Player of the Season: In first place...

We can now reveal our Arsenal Women 2021/22 Player of the Season, presented by Mastercard - as voted for by you, the fans.

The winner by landslide victory is Beth Mead, who has taken her game to the next level under the guidance of Jonas Eidevall this season, delivering a number of outstanding individual performances and helping guide the team to second place in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

Right from the opening day of the season against Chelsea, Beth scored twice in a thrilling 3-2 victory at Emirates Stadium, before going on to provide assists against Slavia Prague, Reading, Manchester City and Tottenham in consecutive games, setting the tone for the season ahead - and what a season it was from our No 9!

Clearly flourishing under Eidevall’s high-pressing, high-intensity system, Mead continued to make the difference on a weekly basis, not only in attack, but in defence too, often leading the press and forcing turnovers at a rate higher than any other WSL attacker.

This season, Mead has averaged 3.19 attempted tackles per 90, 9.21 pressures in the attacking third, and 0.31 defensive actions per 90 that have lead to shots - all of which have increased on her stats in 2020/21.

She’s been a clinical finisher too, scoring 14 goals across all competitions and registering a conversion rate of 27% in the WSL.

Only Vivianne Miedema and Sam Kerr scored more than the England international in the WSL, but perhaps Mead’s finest attribute throughout the season has been her ability to create chances for her teammates.

Our Player of the Season provided more assists than any other WSL player (8) and created a total of 72 chances, 24 more than any other player, in addition to becoming the WSL’s all-time leading assist provider with 36 to her name.

Mead topped our official poll, presented by Mastercard, with Leah Williamson in second place and Vivianne Miedema in third.

Congratulations, Beth!

Teyah Goldie signs professional contract

Teyah Goldie

We are delighted to confirm that Teyah Goldie has signed her first professional contract with us.

Teyah – who turns 18 today – has agreed a long-term deal to stay with the club she has represented for over ten years.

Teyah first joined our youth academy at the age of six in 2011, working her way up through the ranks before making her first-team debut off the bench in our 10-0 FA Cup win over Gillingham on 18 April 2021.

In total, she has made six appearances for our first team so far, including a substitute appearance in our UEFA Women’s Champions League clash with Okzhetpes in August 2021.

Teyah joined Championship side Watford on a dual-registration agreement in January 2022 and won the club’s Player of the Month award for February, before a knee injury curtailed her 2021/22 campaign.

“It feels unbelievable to finally be signing with the club that I love and that I’ve been with all my life almost,” said Teyah. “I’m absolutely delighted. I don’t think I can really put it into words. It’s something that I’ve always dreamed of and now it’s become a reality – I just can’t wait to get going. I’m a Gooner myself so to actually sign here, for the club that I love and support, is just incredible.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “It’s great news that Teyah has signed her first professional contract with us. Our academy has a long tradition of producing talented players for the first team and we all believe that Teyah has the potential to follow that path.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “We’re delighted that Teyah has committed her future to us through her first professional contract. She has shown impressive development in recent years and follows the likes of Leah Williamson and Lotte Wubben-Moy in coming through our renowned academy and into the first-team set-up, where we have high hopes for her future progression.”

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Teyah on signing her first professional contract and looks forward to seeing her continue her development with us.
