Fiona Worts credited her teammates for her success after clinching the Dianne Alagich Medal for an extraordinary campaign.

Worts capped off a truly sensational year having been announced as the Julie Dolan Medal recipient on Thursday night.

The English forward was also top-scorer of the league with 13 goals to claim both the Club and competition’s Golden Boot awards.

Worts admitted taking out the highest individual honour at the Reds was extremely special and thanked her teammates.

“It means a lot to win the Dianne Alagich Medal for this season, being the most valuable player for Adelaide United,” she said via a video link.

“I think we’ve got such a great club and such a great team here and you created an environment for me to thrive and I had the most enjoyable season of my career so far.

“And I think I think it says a lot about us as a club to have won both the Golden Boot for the league and the Julie Dolan medal as well.

She went on to add: “I know we came short with the championship and the premiership and we didn’t didn’t come home with either of those as we’d have liked, but I don’t think a player can can win those kinds of awards without having such a great team behind them.

“So for everyone you know, off the sides in the office and the coaches and players, thank you very much for everything that you’ve done for us this year it’s been been a great season.”

The 26-year-old was also named the A-League Women Red Army Player of the Year, RAA Members’ A-League Women Player of the Year and A-League Women Players’ Player.
