Picture special: MCWFC End of Season Awards

Manchester City Women celebrated another historic year with supporters at an End of Season Awards night.

Presented by Pioneer Group and hosted in the Chairman's Lounge of the Etihad Stadium, the event paid tribute to a campaign in which the Blues secured their highest-ever league finish and qualified for the 2016/17 Champions League.

Fans were invited to commemorate the achievement with their City heroes - five of which had also made history with England in the World Cup, clinching a bronze medal in Canada in the country's best performance since the men won the tournament in 1966.

After guests enjoyed a drinks reception and buffer dinner, the awards ceremony was introduced by the evening's host, CityTV's Nicola McCarthy.

Categories included: the Timeline Rising Star, Pioneer Community, Vitality Fitness, Nissan Goal of the Season and Etihad Airways Player of the Season Awards.
