Two New Zealand Football Ferns have earned the accolade of being named in an A-League women's team of the season

Melbourne City's Rebekah Stott has been named as a starting defender, while Phoenix midfielder Macey Fraser is a substitute.


Fraser has now joined the Utah Royals in the National Women's Soccer League on what is reported to be a record sum.

Members of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) were asked to vote on their best team selection at the end of the Liberty A-League regular season, a tradition that began in 2009.

The composition of the team is based on the number of votes tallied for each player in each position, with the substitutes bench comprising those players who finished below those in the starting XI positions. The player with the most votes is determined the Team of the Season’s captain

Phoenix forward Mariana Speckmaier, who has been recalled to the Venezuela squad, picked up the fan's player of the year award for her 10 goals in 21 matches.
