- Beth Mead, Ellen White and Lucy Bronze are made MBEs
- Denise Lewis becomes a dame and Pat Jennings gets CBE
England captain Leah Williamson is one of four Euro 2022 winners to be recognised in the New Year honours list.
The Arsenal defender lifted the Lionesses’ first major trophy after the team’s 2-1 extra-time defeat of Germany at Wembley to earn the only piece of silverware for an England senior side since the men’s team’s World Cup triumph in 1966. The 25-year-old becomes an OBE, while her teammates Beth Mead, Ellen White and Lucy Bronze have been awarded MBEs. The head coach Sarina Wiegman has also been awarded an honorary CBE.
