Check out the All-Star first and second teams from the 2023 Women’s Premier Division.

Women's Premier Division First XI

After being named the Goalkeeper of the Year, Young Player of the Year, and women’s MVP, Gurleen Toor is between the sticks in the 2023 Women’s Premier Division All-Star team.

Two players who also made it to consecutive division finals sit immediately in front of her. Alliance United teammate and converted striker Laura Gosse partners with Defender of the Year Zoe Markesini. Another Alliance star, Jenny Wolever, is selected on the left of the defence, with Simcoe County Rovers’ Trinity Esprit on the right; both were Defender of the Year finalists.

Fellow Simcoe star Cloey Uddenberg is in the centre of the team having been crowned Midfielder of the Year. Joining her are two Vaughan Azzurri players: Leah Pais, who scored 11 goals in 14 regular-season games this season, and Jotam Chouhan who played in all of her side’s matches in 2023. Creative talent Alanna Raimondo finishes the high-quality midfield lineup.

Up top is Forward of the Year and Golden Boot winner Jayda Thompson, who netted 18 goals in just 14 games. She is partnered by Nia Fleming-Thompson who scored 11 in 17 and helped Vaughan Azzurri to second in the regular-season standings.

Women's Premier Division Second XI

In the All-Star second team, Jessica Lisi provides plenty of firepower up front having scored 13 goals in 14 games for Woodbridge Strikers in 2023. Alongside her is Madison Mariani who netted 11 goals of her own for eventual champions Alliance United.

Providing support in the middle of the pitch is an experienced duo in April Syme and Laura Twidle, who played a combined total of 30 regular-season games between them for Woodbridge Strikers and Blue Devils respectively. They are joined by two Young Player of the Year finalists, Courtney Poon and Charlotte Cromack, who was the eventual award winner.

Defender of the Year finalist Sarah Rollins features at the back having contributed to seven North Toronto Nitro clean sheets. Alliance’s Hannah Chown sits beside her, with Woodbridge Strikers full-back Ida Micelli.

North Mississauga impressed defensively in 2023 and Kennedi Herrmann has also been selected in the backline, with teammate Mollie Eriksson in goal having lost just four of the 15 games she played in this season.
