The talented defender was named the Wanderers Medal winner for 2021/22. She was also on the bench in the PFA’s Team of the Season in her first season at the club.

Life wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine for the 23-year-old, however, and Hunt had a two-season lay-off due to an injury.

“I’ve had to experience quite a lot of hardship in terms of injury over the last five or six years,” Hunt said.

“Personally, it wasn’t the easiest process. And I found aspects of it difficult considering the number of injuries I had and the proximity of those injuries.

“I think any injury is a very personal process, and it’s an opportunity for an individual to learn more about themselves.

Having learned so much from her first few seasons in competition and her time off due to injury, she is eager to continue developing and sharing.

“I think the biggest lesson from my injury period has been growth in maturity and understanding the game more,” she said.

“It gave me time to step back and tactically analyse the game even though I couldn’t play it.

In spite of multiple challenges, Hunt will serve as the club’s new captain during the 2022/23 season.

“It is a very proud moment in my career to be named captain of the Wanderers, and it is a responsibility that I am eager to take on,” said Hunt.

Returning for her second season in the Wanderers squad, Hunt is ready to pick up where she left off.

“Myself combined with multiple other leaders within the club and some awesome coaching staff and support staff,” she said.

“I think if everyone shows up and buys into what we want to achieve this season, then I’m sure we can win something this season.”
