Home-grown soccer sensation Jada Whyman, 16, has wowed National Premier League officials, winning the Goalkeeper of the Year for the second year running.
Whyman graciously accepted the prize on Friday, thanking her coaches, team-mates and sponsor via social media, and was inundated with congratulations from friends and supporters.
Whyman, who plays for W-League club Western Sydney Wanderers, plays in the NPL to keep her skills fresh in the off-season.
It was a tough season for her team, cellar dwellers, Football NSW Institute.
NSW Institute finished last from 10 teams, with a win, three draws and 14 losses.
Though she was well and truly under the pump in goals, as the season wrapped-up, Whyman told the Daily Advertiser it was a positive experience.
There’s no rest for the sporting elite. Whyman’s training hard, and looking forward to her second season in the W-League, which kicks off in early November.
