Canberra United star Grace Maher signs on for another season

Canberra United has secured another re-signing for 2021/22, with Grace Maher joining the squad for the upcoming W-League season.

At 22, the talented midfielder has played 59 W-League matches, playing 1,006 minutes of football last season with 533 passes at 72% accuracy.

Maher spent the W-League off-season playing in the NPL NSW Women’s competition with APIA Leichhardt, playing 11 matches before the season was suspended.

The Majura FC local has always called Canberra home and said she’s excited to build on last season’s results.

“I am proud and excited to be back in green this season,” Maher said.

“We had a successful campaign to get back into finals football last year and I cannot wait to be here to help build on that. 

“Canberra is my home and the feeling of playing for United is something I don’t get at other clubs.

“This season is set to be exciting and I think building off what we created last year and improving those finer details will be key for us this year”.

Speaking on her re-signing, Canberra United Head Coach Vicki Linton said “It is great having players such as Grace who are so passionate about playing for the club.

“Grace continues to grow as a professional player and it will be good to work with her again this season and to see that continued development.”

Maher is the fifth signing announced for Season 14 of the W-League, joining Michelle Heyman, Emma Ilijoski, Laura Hughes and Allira Toby.
