Sterling becomes the second successive City player to win the prestigious Young Player award, following City’s win last year of Leroy Sane who was awarded the prize last year.

And Houghton was handed the Merit Award for her services to the game.

In the Football Writer’s Awards, Raheem Sterling has been voted the 2019 Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association and Nikita Parris has won the women’s equivalent of the award.

Sterling has been in superb form for City this season, scoring 23 goals and adding a further 17 assists in all competitions for the Club.

He is the first City player to win the prestigious prize since Tony Book in 1969.

And Parris’ award is a well deserved reward in what has been a superb campaign for the 25-year-old, who is the FA Women’s Super League all-time leading scorer.

Currently in the form of her life, Parris leads City’s 2018/19 goal scoring charts with an astonishing 24 goals in 29 appearances.

Congratulations to all Blues! Hope the form continues for both squads!
