The term is the 16-year-old's first season in the W-League, coming from Manly United in the WNPL and has so far scored two goals in four games for the Sky Blues.

She also partook in the Young Matildas Asian Cup Qualifiers in Nanjing, China with teammates Princess Ibini and Hannah Bacon.

“I’m very honoured to be nominated for this award and definitely couldn’t have done it without the girls,” Siemsen said.

“They’re the ones making me look good out there so very honoured to be nominated for this award.

“It’s been amazing, the girls have been really welcoming, high level of football and it’s been a big jump from what I was playing but I’ve enjoyed every minute of the experience.

“It’s definitely helping me to develop as a player being surrounded by such quality players like Caitlin Foord and Kyah Simon.”

Siemsen has a lot on her plate, including her Year 12 studies next year and was determined to kick some goals in the future.

“I only just got called into a Young Matildas team this year, just going to work hard to keep my position in that squad,” she said.

“Hopefully I get the call-up (to Matildas), that’s something I want, I can’t say when but I’d love to play for Australia.

“I’d love to play in the US eventually or the Bundesliga.

“It is quite a young league (W-League), it’s definitely a big jump for some girls and I think it’s definitely setting the bar high for the up and coming players coming through.”

The W-League Young Footballer of the Year Award will be announced at the Dolan Warren Awards Night at the end of the A-League regular season.
