Patrick Aisa

Home-grown player secures NZ spot

Hamilton Wanderers are preparing for the upcoming national league football season, drawing on coach Ricki Herbert’s past connections.

Patrick Aisa left for New Zealand last Monday, joining countryman Tommy Semmy, who are both on board with Wanderers for the 2017-18 ISPS Handa Premiership.

The 23-year-old, who has made six impressive appearances for the PNG national team, caught the eye of Herbert during his coaching stint with the PNG Under-23 team in 2015.
