England Women Star & Euro 2022 Best Player Favourite For BBC Award
Beth Mead is now the odds-on favourite to be crowned 2022 BBC Sports Personality of the Year after England Women’s Euro 2022 tournament win.
Chloe Kelly’s extra-time goal was the difference as the Lionesses were crowned European Champions for the first time, but Mead’s starring role en route to the final has put her in pole position for the coveted accolade traditionally handed out in December.

Mead was a remote 80/1 shot in the betting at the start of the tournament, but Mead kicked off the final Wembley as 7/4 favourite as she led the goals race alongside Germany’s Alexandra Popp.
Mead’s superior assist count ensured she was handed the Golden Boot and she has now sunk into 4/11 with BoyleSports to scoop the BBC award having been named Player of the Tournament.
Captain Leah Williamson is now second favourite at 10/1 from 66/1 while Ronnie O’Sullivan, who had been favourite for the award since he matched Stephen Hendry’s haul of seven world snooker titles in May, has been pushed out to 10/1 from 3/1.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “England’s Euros win is surely the sporting highlight of the year and Beth Mead is Sports Personality of the Year in waiting according to punters.
“Her goals have given her the edge over her teammates and the gamble into 4/11 from 80/1 over the past couple of weeks means it’ll take quite a twist to deny her now.”
BoyleSports Football Ambassador Natalie Sawyer commented: “If you hadn’t watched the Women’s Euros this summer, then you genuinely have missed out.
“The standard from the World Cup in 2019 significantly improved with entertaining, open and attacking, end to end games.
“The Lionesses have endured it all, from tentative 1-0 wins to 8-0 hammerings. This team has captured the hearts of many, and building on their legacy is a must to ensure we don’t fail the next generation of Williamson’s, White’s, Russo’s & Earps’.
“The future feels bright – they have become legends.”
