A BARNSLEY student was recently nominated for a Professional Footballers Association Award.

Amy Turner, 23, was nominated in the Young Women’s Player of the Year category.

This comes just months after her debut for the England women's football team.

Amy is currently studying for a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at University Campus Barnsley.

She said: "It was a bit surreal on the night as I was sat next to the Chelsea players so it was strange to see them all clapping when they were showing clips of me in action on the video screen. It was a special night.”
