Che Adams has been named Players' Player of the Season and Supporters' Player of the Season 2018/19.

Hayley Ladd won the Blues Women Players' Player of the Season and Aoife Mannion was voted Supporters' Player of the Season 2018/19.

The winners were revealed at a glittering night at Birmingham's ICC on Broad Street, in front of more than 1,200 guests.

For the first time, Blues combined the awards ceremonies of both the Men's and Women's teams.

Adams was a landslide winner of the Players' Player accolade, sponsored by Swallow Wholesale Drinks Solutions.

The striker - who took the Top Goalscorer honour, sponsored by Zoo Accounting and Business Solutions - edged Lukas Jutkiewicz in one of the closest Supporters' votes ever.

Adams polled 41 per cent of the thousands of votes cast and Jutkiewicz 39 per cent - thus gaining him the trophy, sponsored by 888sport.

Of Adams' 22 goals this season, his strike at Swansea City was named Goal of the Season, the award sponsored by Birmingham International Coaches. So if was a quartet of trophies for Adams.

Wales international Ladd has been a model of consistency this season and her efforts were recognised by her teammates with the MKG Foods sponsored Players' Player of the Season.

It was another close call, too, for the Supporters' Player of the Season, sponsored by Maple from Canada.

Defender Mannion, whose game keeps improving campaign by campaign, pipped Ellen White to the honour.

England striker White gained some personal consolation as she picked up Top Goalscorer this season. The award sponsored by Technical Drive.

Onto the Young Player of the Season - the winners were Connor Mahoney and Hannah Hampton.

On-loan winger Mahoney improved month by month for Garry Monk's side to take the Eze Talk-sponsored trophy.

England Under-19 international Hampton underlined her quality and potential in the Blues Women goal, after stepping into the breach. She received her trophy from sponsors Solihull College and University Centre.

Lucy Quinn's stunning effort at Chelsea Women was voted Goal of the Season by supporters (sponsored by Univent). It was judged best of a cracking selection.

Both Blues Men's and Women's teams have been extremely active in the community this season and this was recognised at the ICC.

Maikel Kieftenbeld was named Community Ambassador of the Season, sponsored by JS Spooner.

And Club Captain and long-serving Kerys Harrop received the Goodwin Community Ambassador award, sponsored by Goodwin trade.

In a special interactive initiative, guests were asked to vote for their Ultimate Goal of the Season, choosing between Adams and Quinn's efforts.

And it was Lucy Quinn who got the nod, with the award presented by sponsor Steve Perryman.

Terry Doloway was revealed as Women's Supporter of the Season, courtesy of sponsors Event Master.

Tony Routley received the Men's Supporter of the Season, sponsored by House of Cavani.

Monies raised on the night went towards the Club's two charity partners - the Geoff Horsfield Foundation and Women's Aid. And in total a fantastic amount of money went to the two worthy causes.

The event, which was hosted by Pete Graves and Hayley McQueen, was rounded-off by entertainment from Mitchell Brunings, the soul and reggae singer-songwriter.
