The Guardian has been named newspaper of the year at the Football Supporters’ Association awards – winning the award for the eighth time.

The award was one of three big prizes for the Guardian, with the Football Weekly podcast winning podcast of the year and Jonathan Wilson picking up the writer of the year prize for the third time.

The FSA, formerly known as the Football Supporters’ Federation, represents match-going fans across the UK, with the awards voted for by more than 40,000 fans.

The Guardian’s writers made up half of the writer of the year shortlist, with Suzanne Wrack and Jonathan Liew also nominated. Cartoonist David Squires was featured on the online media of the year shortlist.

The FSA said: “The Guardian deservedly took home the newspaper of the year for an amazing eighth year in a row, as voted for by fans. The breadth and quality of content is unsurpassed – proven by the fact that Guardian writers made up half of the shortlist for writer of the year.”

Liverpool’s Mo Salah won the men’s player of the year award for a second time, while Arsenal’s Vivienne Miedema took home the women’s award. Alex Scott was named pundit of the year.
