The former Hekari United player Tommy Semmy had another good season in New Zealand playing for Hamilton Wanderers. The forward was, alongside the MVP of the season Derek Tieku, the most important players of his team in the most important football league of New Zealand, the ISPS Handa Premiership.
Tommy, after scoring ten goals in the 2018/19 season of ISPS Handa Premiership for Hamilton Wanderers and being the the top scorer of NRFL Premier, was chosen into the best starting XI of the 2019/20 in the New Zealand top-tier.

Wanderers finished 6th in the table, just two points away the 4th placed team Eastern Suburbs in the process. Semmy was a key figure for his team in the season; he also trialled in the full-professional outfit Wellington Phoenix in the New Zealand capital before the start of the national laegue, but he was not offered a contract.
Semmy represented Papua New Guinea in the previous OFC Nations Cup in 2016 held in home country, where he and his team finished in the 2nd place after suffering a heartbreaking defeat imposed by New Zealand in the penalty shootout. The attacker is a very important part of PNG Kapuls and will certainly represent his country once again in the upcoming OFC Nations Cup to be played in New Zealand.
