Four Launceston-based players have been selected in the Tasmanian teams to play against Western United's partner club Calder ahead of next week's A-League fixture.
Jess Robinson will represent the region in the senior side while her Launceston United teammates Gonya Luate and Jess McCallumsmith will be joined by Riverside's Chelsea Wing in an under-19 team.
Both games will be played ahead of United's clash with Wellington Phoenix on Thursday week.
English-born Robinson said she was proud to represent her adopted home.
"There was a really high standard at the trials and it's an honour to be picked," said the 22-year-old midfielder. It's a good challenge for us all.
"I want to be competitive and show what Tassie has got to offer and that we've got a good standard down here.
"You need a pathway in soccer and if you haven't got a rep side you haven't given people a chance to express themselves against other players in Australia. So it's really important to have that development step to test themselves against the best players and showcase what they've got to push onto other things afterwards."
Chris Hey will coach the senior side with Taroona's Karen Wills while the youth team is coached by Kingborough's Simon Edwards and Alistair Ollington, of Devonport.
"We were pleased with the amount of interest from players around the state," Hey said. "Overall there were more than 80 that turned up at the trials which for a one-off game is really good.
"From a coaching perspective, that made our job a lot harder but the quality of player was really good.
"We hope to showcase the standard of footballer in Tasmania because we do have some high quality players. That's what we want to take out of the games. The quality in the front third of players around the state is excellent and I believe if they can combine well they will produce a good quality game."
