Canberra United is delighted to announce that two-time Julie Dolan Medal winner Michelle Heyman has re-signed with the club for the 2021/22 W-League season.
From her incredible return to the W-League, reclaiming the all-time W-League goal scoring record, playing her 100th game in green and helping Canberra United make finals, 2020/21 was a big season for Heyman.
To cap it all off, the striker was awarded the Julie Dolan Medal at the Dolan Warren Awards, as voted by a panel of technical football experts and media representatives.
With 73 goals to her name in the W-League, including 61 for Canberra United, Heyman will be looking to add more to her tally when the season commences in November.
Speaking about entering her 10th season with the club, Heyman said she’s counting down the days.
“I am so excited to announce that I am back in green for the 2021/22 W-League season,” Heyman said.
“I absolutely loved everything about last season and can’t wait to be back training and playing with the girls.
“I’m just so happy and grateful for another opportunity to represent Canberra, play in front of our amazing fans and push for another finals appearance.”
Canberra United Head Coach Vicki Linton said she is really pleased to have Michelle back playing for Canberra.
“I really enjoyed seeing her come back to the game last year and do so well and I hope she enjoys another great season this year.”
