Her 2019 so far: 

Alanna Kennedy is only 24, but her trophy cabinet would stack up well against even the most hardened collectors of silverware.

Her most recent triumph was to help Sydney FC to the Westfield W-League 2018/19 Championship – the fourth Grand Final win of her career.

Kennedy is a centre-half by trade, but the immensely talented Campbelltown-born stalwart could excel in just about any position on the pitch, such is her skill-set.

She often shields the defence from a deeper-lying midfield role for NWSL side Orlando Pride, for whom she scored a memorable bicycle kick in the National Women's Soccer League in April.
