Ris­ing soc­cer star Betsy Has­sett has had an out­stand­ing year.

The tal­ented mid­fielder picked up Na­tional Women’s League player of the year af­ter the Auck­land A team de­feated Welling­ton in the fi­nal of the Na­tional Women’s League last month.

The award capped off a stel­lar year for Has­sett, who made the cham­pion Auck­land side for the first time this sea­son.

“It was quite scary at first be­cause you don’t want to make mis­takes but the team were re­ally friendly and ac­cepted me right away.”

The tal­ented teen was also part of the suc­cess­ful Three Kings United club side who were crowned cham­pi­ons of the women’s North­ern Pre­mier League this year.

Best of the best: Betsy Has­sett.
