International players have always formed a big part of what Uni FC is about. Every year we not only welcome new players from all over Australia, but from countries all over the world. From America to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between. Whether they've moved here permanently, for the length of their degree, or just for one semester, international players have made a big impact to both the success on the field and the culture of friendship off it.
So much so that we decided we wanted to specifically honour the international students that come on exchange for a semester, only getting to play the first half to two thirds of the season, and still make an impact on the field.
So we created the International Player of the Year Award in 2015
International Player of the Year - Hall of Fame
Taiki Tsujino (Japan) - 2016
Taiki made an instant impact at our club with some amazing skills, cutting in from the left side of the field to score some great goals in the first games of the season setting us well on our way to the finals. If he was only here longer maybe he could have helped us go even further!
Alieu Musa (USA) - 2015
It didn't take long for Moose to become a Uni FC favourite, and will go down in folklore for years to come, after winning the golden boot with 14 goals in just the first half of the season!
The man was a speed machine and had cannons hidden in those orange boots!
