The teams for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was announced today, and Southern United’s Amy Lawton was selected as one of the 16 women to represent Australia as a Hockeyroo.
Amy joined Southern United in 2011 as a 9yo, playing in the Southern United under 11 mixed shield team and has progressed quickly, playing representative hockey and soccer for many years, until hockey won the race between the two.
In 2012, the under 11 mixed shield team finished as runners up with Amy a key part of the team. Then in 2014 when Southern won its first ever mixed shield premiership in under 14s Amy was there. The under 16 mixed shield were runners up in 2016 and 2017 then won the premiership in 2018 with Amy as a key part of the team each year.
As part of our premier league team Amy won the Pam Vincent Best & Fairest medal in 2018 and 2019, while winning AIS emerging Athlete of the year in 2019.
In 2019 Amy made her Hockeyroos debut as a just turned 18yo while completing her VCE. In 2020 Amy was selected as part of the Hockeyroos squad based in Perth.
