Tara Andrews takes out Herald WPL top prize for second consecutive year

October 22nd, 2019

Incredibly, for the second year in a row, New Lambton FC’s ‘golden-girl’ Tara Andrews was awarded the top individual prize at last Friday night’s The Jennings Medal at NEX Newcastle, the Herald Women’s Premier League Player of the Year.

The Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League striker scored an astonishing 42 goals – which also helped her share the Golden Boot honours with Warners Bay’s Jenna Kingsley – and lead her team to a fantastic Grand Final and Premiership double-winning year.

Her club and teammates also received other honours including Imogen Tomasone winning the Goalkeeper of the Year award, and the club being awarded both the Club Championship and Fair Play Award, the latter they shared with Adamstown Rosebud JFC.

Adamstown also won the Club of the Year award, while departing Merewether United coach Cass Koppen was awarded the Coach of the Year by her peers.
