WaiBOP United is pleased to announce the signing of defender, Tyler Lissette (pictured above in yellow), ahead of the 2013/14 ASB Premiership season.
Hamilton-born Lissette took the field for Waikato FC during the 2011/12 ASB Premiership season. He was part of Waikato FC’s 2012/13 squad but never made it onto the field due to injury. Lissette played for Team Wellington during the 2010/11 season.
Twenty two year old now, Lissette has already made more than twenty ASB Premiership appearances in his career, including a couple of play-off matches during his time with Team Wellington. He can play in either the centre of defensive or a holding midfield role.
WaiBOP United Head Coach, Peter Smith, is happy to see Lissette join his squad. “Tyler will add strength and balance to our defensive stocks,” says Smith. “I’m pleased we’re able to welcome him back to the region and I’m sure he’ll be a main stay of the team as we aim for a strong performance this season. It’s important we get our defensive shape and organisation right and with Tyler in the mix, alongside the other players we’ve signed, I think we start with a good chance of achieving that.”
