CHLOE LINCOLN RE-SIGNS FOR HOMETOWN UNITED

CHLOE LINCOLN RE-SIGNS FOR HOMETOWN UNITED

Canberra United are delighted to announce the re-signing of goalkeeper Chloe Lincoln on a two-year contract that will see her play Liberty A-League football for the club in 2022/23 and 2023/24.

Lincoln, who has represented the Young Matildas and recently played in the AFF Tournament, made her Canberra debut last season as a substitute in Perth and went on to make six starts for the club keeping an impressive three clean sheets in those half-a-dozen outings.

Currently playing in the National Premier League (NPL) with the Canberra United Academy, Lincoln is a highly rated prospect by both club and country.

“Chloe is swiftly developing into one of the best goalkeepers in the country and I am excited to be able to witness her progression first-hand at Canberra United for at least the next two seasons,” Head Coach Njegosh Popovich said.

“Her rise through the Academy ranks and into the Young Matildas set-up has been a rapid one, but thoroughly deserved. She has excellent positioning, is confident on crosses, has brilliant distribution and is a wonderful shot-stopper. In short, she ticks all the boxes needed for a quality goalkeeper at this level.”

Lincoln was thrust into the spotlight last season when deputising for the injured Keeley Richards and was in inspirational form, saving a penalty against Melbourne Victory at Viking Park and even notching an assist to her statistics column from a booming clearance against Western Sydney Wanderers. 

“It was an easy decision for me to commit my future to Canberra United,” Lincoln said of her new contract.

“The club holds a special place in my heart and the supporters are amazing. 

“Having made my debut for the club last season, I’ve had a taste of the Liberty A-League and am keen for more. Pulling on the goalkeeper shirt at Canberra United is a real privilege and one I would never take for granted.” 

“I am excited to fight for a place in the starting team and am looking forward to working with an experienced group of players and coaches to bring success back to our community.”
