Allira Toby joins Canberra United

In exciting signing news, Canberra United can today announce that striker Allira Toby is joining the club for the upcoming W-League season.

The 27-year-old joins Canberra from Sydney FC, where she made 14 appearances in 2020/21, helping the side reach the W-League Grand Final.

In 2016, the Queenslander made her W-League debut with Adelaide United before heading to Brisbane Roar where she was awarded the club’s Golden Boot in their 2017/18 Premiership winning campaign and again the next season.

Toby said signing with Canberra is an exciting new journey for her as a player.

“I’m happy to be in green this season and I can’t wait to be a part of everything that the team, club and fans represent,” Toby said.

“As a team, I hope we have a consistent season and a spot in the finals. Individually, honestly, I just want to be playing well, scoring goals and helping the team in whatever capacity I can.”

Canberra United Head Coach Vicki Linton said she’s looking forward to Allira coming to Canberra.

“I am really pleased that Allira will be joining Canberra for the upcoming season,” she said.

“She brings W-League experience and is a renowned goal-scorer. I am excited to get her into the training environment and see how she combines within our team.”

Toby will join the team for preseason next month.

“Canberra just seems like the right fit. It’s a great opportunity for me to be able to grow and learn, both on and off the field.

“I can’t wait to meet my new teammates and get stuck in for the upcoming season”.
