VAFA Rising Star - Sunday Hollingsworth

Super big congrats to Sunday Hollingsworth who was selected as this week’s VAFA Round 5 Women’s Rising Star. This is a tremendous achievement.

Sunday is new to the club this year but has impressed at every turn, making her Senior debut in Round 1. She has been a great contributor to the Senior team this year - super competitive, quick, creative with the ball and very skilful.

This is such an honour for any player and certainly for the club and the women’s program, it really provides a great stimulus.

Sunday was very thankful when we contacted her, “I’m very grateful to get this recognition from the people at VAFA. It certainly wasn’t expected, and I feel honoured. I’d like to thank the coaches, the club, my family and especially my team-mates who have made me and all the other new girls feel very welcome. Thanks so much to everyone.”

Here’s the text from the VAFA announcement:

“The VAFA congratulates Sunday Hollingsworth from Beaumaris FC who has been nominated as the Round 5 Anytime Fitness Rising Star. Sunday comes from an elite sporting family where excellence runs in her veins, as has shown being listed in the best players for her side for a consecutive 3 weeks in a row in just her first ever season of football.”

What the Club said:

Sunday joined Beaumaris in the pre-season with little football history. Sunday loved playing school footy, but her training schedule as an elite trampolinist prevented from pursuing further, Sunday is both a State and National champion, having represented both Victoria and Australia in Trampoline and was team captain of the Australian team last year. Her trampolining background certainly helps with her balance and aerial work on the footy field.

Coach Darryl Behrendorff said, “Sunday should be immensely proud of her nomination for the VAFA Anytime Fitness Rising Star. It’s a testament to her exceptional character, talent, dedication, and positive impact she brings to the playing group. Her hard work and commitment to the game shine through in this recognition, and it’s well-deserved acknowledgement for her efforts. Congratulations to Sunday on this outstanding achievement!”

Well done Sunday and GO SHARKS!
