Hassett on top
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.
