Peel Thunderbirds player Sabrina Traub-Frederick was named captain of the Australian Breeze national youth side for its recent tour of New Zealand.

The Australian Breeze ” toured the north island last month.

‘Who would have thought that an English-born Jamaican, would ever be selected as a captain of Australia?’ Frederick-Traub said.

Frederick-Traub makes history at 16, as the first international touring captain of a female Australian football team.

Fellow West Australians Ashley Sharp (Swans Districts), Michelle Cowan (head coach and recent winner of the Football Woman of the Year Award) and Dana Pimley (head trainer for Fremantle) joined her on tour.

Frederick-Traub said they got on well with the Kahus (New Zealand side) and learnt a lot through the leadership program.

AFLNZ welcomed the tour as a way of growing awareness about girls being able to pay women’s Australian football.
