Canberra United FC is pleased to welcome Caitlin Munoz, Lydia Williams, Amy Chapman, Grace Gill, Hayley Crawford, Rhian Davies, Thea Slatyer and Sasha McDonnell as their first signings for the inaugural season of the Westfield W-League kicking off at the end of October.

Local Westfield Matildas- Munoz, Williams and Chapman along with former Westfield Young Matilda Gill make up the first contingent of local players to line up in the green this summer while Crawford, Davies, Slayter and McDonnell were selected off the FFA designated player list to join Canberra United.

The first recruitment and registration period closed yesterday, Friday 19th September, with all clubs signing their big name players in the first instance.

“We-ve recruited really well in the first window of opportunity, attracting not only our local players but signing a number of national players from other parts of Australia who will make up the solid foundation for the first season,” head coach Robbie Hooker said.

“We-ve got a fantastic base to build from and we can only get stronger from here as we look to give the league a big shake this season.”

The available signed players are this weekend taking part in Canberra United-s first training camp at the AIS and the team looks to build towards to start of the season.

“Unfortunately we couldn-t get everyone here this weekend at short notice but having said that we-ve got a lot of players who have both signed with the club and are trialling for contracts.”

No further players can be signed between now and the end of the month with the second registration window opening on October 1, but the side will continue to train and trial players looking to be selected.
