Becky is on a four-strong shortlist for Women’s Rising Star award, alongside Niamh Charles of Liverpool Ladies, Megan Finnigan of Everton Ladies and Manchester City’s Keira Walsh.
Jim Green, chief executive of Chester FC Community Trust, said: “It’s fantastic recognition for both Jamie-Lee and Becky, and for the Chester FC Women’s set-up.
“I know manager Dean Vian holds both players in very high regard and is equally delighted for them. They have established themselves as very important members of the squad and contributed to an excellent start to the 2017/18 season for the team.
“We wish them the best of the luck at the awards.”
Joining Jamie-Lee and Becky on the list of finalists is club-mate Ryan Astles with the Blues defender shortlisted for National League Player of the Year along with Andy Cook of Tranmere Rovers, Barrow’s Moussa Diarra and Macclesfield’s George Pilkington.
