Football performance & talent manager Rhys Harwood says the nomination is a deserved reward for King’s efforts.

“Since coming into our program Mia has improved every week, and is developing into a really important part of our team,” Harwood told North Media.

“Mia certainly has some additional responsibility through the midfield this season, and it was fantastic to see her really step up on the weekend, playing an important role around the contest, and obviously her goal came at a critical point in the game’

“We’ve been really happy with her development, and we’re looking forward to her continued growth, both as a footballer and a person, in our program. This nomination is a great reward for her effort and attitude”.
