Player Spotlight – Abby Hardy
Congratulations on almost completing your first year with Fusion FC.
How has the transition from Vancouver FC to Fusion FC been?
The coaches from Vancouver FC had really prepared me for the next level. I immediately got playing time in games which gave me even more confidence on the field. From there I was able to add physicality and fast playing to my game.
How did it feel to be asked to join Fusion FC?
When I got asked to join Fusion it proved to me that the early mornings and the late night training were all worth it. If you set a goal with endless hard work you can accomplish it.
What are some of your Fusion highlights so far?
I love it when we travel because during these times you can surround yourself with soccer. You can be more focused and ready to perform. I especially loved it last spring when we travelled to Kamloops and competed some tough matches against Thompson Okanagan.
Who is your favourite soccer player and team?
My favourite soccer player is Tobin Heath. She has an insane ability to beat defenders 1v1. She has overcome so many injuries and is a US Women’s National Team starter. Her club team is the Portland Thorns FC. She gets to play alongside Christine Sinclair and the prolific goal scorer, Lindsey Horan.
