Hayley Taylor-Young commits to Canberra

Hayley Taylor-Young is back with Canberra United for 2021/22, signing on for her third season in green.

The 19-year-old was a powerhouse off the bench for Canberra United last season, providing energy in often crucial stages of games.

Down 1-0 in their Round 4 match against Perth Glory last season, Taylor-Young was brought in off the bench and immediately made an impact, scoring in the 87th minute to help maintain Canberra’s undefeated record at Viking Park.

“I’m very honoured and excited to be able to play for Canberra again,” Hayley said

“Last year was yet another incredible experience and gave me a huge opportunity to grow as a player. 

“I believe it helped me find more confidence in myself. 

“Being surrounded by such talented groups has helped me grow into the player I am today and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given. 

“I want to learn as much as I can from the other girls, form some long lasting friendships and make finals once again.”

Canberra United Head Coach Vicki Linton said it’s great to welcome Hayley back for another year.

“She is a talented young player and it will be good to see her continue developing and to increase her impact in games.”
