Brisbane Roar and Matildas midfielder Katrina Gorry has been announced the PFA Women’s Footballer of the Year to cap off a stellar 2014.

The fifth winner of the award voted on by all PFA female members (the players), Gorry narrowly beat out fellow nominees Sam Kerr (2013 winner) and Emily van Egmond.

“This caps of what was a truly unbelievable season for me,” said Gorry.

“To have been voted by the players as the winner is a huge honour."

The PFA award is the latest in a long line, including the AFC & FFA Women's Player of the Year, to recognise Gorry's achievements in 2014.

“The recognition of your peers is something that is special to all players and I’m extremely proud to have won the award.”

PFA President Matt McKay paid tribute to his fellow Brisbane Roar midfielder.

“On behalf of the PFA Executive and all our members I would like to congratulate Katrina on this well earned recognition,” said McKay.

“For both club and country she has been truly outstanding.

“With the Women’s World Cup just around the corner I have little doubt that Katrina will continue to rack up the accolades and I wish her and her fellow Matildas all the very best in their preparations for the tournament.”

Gorry and the Matildas are currently in camp ahead of a two match tour of New Zealand which will see Australia take on DPR Korea and the Football Ferns in early February.

The Matildas schedule will then take them to Europe for the Cyprus Cup where they will meet England, the Netherlands and Finland in Group A.

Previous winners of the PFA award include Servet Uzulnar (2010), Elise Kellond-Knight (2011), Lydia Williams (2012) and Kerr (2013).
