AMELIA BROWN SHORTLISTED FOR BWSL YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Huddersfield Giants Women's winger Amelia Brown has been shortlisted for BWSL Young Player of the Year 2023.
Huddersfield Giants’ Amelia Brown has been shortlisted for the 2023 Betfred Women’s Super League Young Player of the Year award after claiming 11 League tries this season.
Amelia first joined the Giants back in 2021, debuting against Warrington Wolves in the Women’s Challenge Cup. She made a barnstorming 30 metre sprint down the left edge for the first try of her top level career, setting the tone for seasons to come.
She would go on to add 5 more tries to her claret and gold account as well as winning the ‘Best Back’ award at the Giants’ 2021 award event.
Amelia was a part of the 2022 Giants line-up that ran riot versus Hull FC in a Challenge Cup clash, with a staggering 7 tries to her name in a 114-0 win.
She has since been added to the England Knights Performance Squad over the past two years with her impressive displays on the left edge.
The winger was Huddersfield’s highest point and try scorer in this year’s BWSL. She scored 11 tries (44 points) from 10 League fixtures, with hat-tricks over Warrington Wolves and reigning champions Leeds Rhinos.
She also picked up 4 tries in an U19s clash between the Giants and York, and was also named in TotalRL’s Team of the Month (August).
More recently, she was our sole try-scorer versus League Leaders York Valkyrie. However fans may however recall this cracking tackle in the final few seconds to deny the home side 4 extra points.
Congratulations on the nomination Amelia!
