7th October 2014
Ashley Williams has been named Welsh Club Player of the Year for a fourth year in a row.
The 30-year-old centre-back collected the award at the annual Football Association of Wales presentation evening in Cardiff on the back of another impressive season with the Swans in 2013-14.
Williams was ever-present at the heart of defence and has continued that fine form into the new campaign, where he has been a standout performer so far in 2014-15.
Meanwhile, Swansea City Ladies secretary Julie Lowe received an FAW award for long service, alongside former Wales skipper Kevin Ratcliffe, who took the gong for the men's game.
Gareth Bale set a new record after being voted Welsh Player of the Year for a fourth time, while former Swans left-back Ben Davies collected the young player accolade.
Jess Fishlock retained her crown as Women's Player of the Year for the fourth consecutive year.
The Women's Young Player of the Year prize went to Angharad James, while Michelle Green, who made her Wales debut in 2001, was rewarded with the Women's Club Player of the Year award.
Another long serving player, New Saints midfielder Scott Ruscoe, was named Welsh Premier Clubman of the Year.
A special award was also made to Jamo Matikainen, the outgoing national women's team manager.
