Canberra United are pleased to welcome back midfielder Chloe Middleton for a second season in green.
Middleton first pulled on the green shirt for the club in Round 1 last season, starting in the centre of the park for the Friday evening clash with Melbourne City, going on to make fourteen appearances during the year, starting eight matches.
The midfielder netted her first career Liberty A-League goal whilst with Canberra as well, a strike in the 5-0 win over her former club Western Sydney Wanderers, her 66th minute goal taking the score to 3-0.
“We are pleased that Chloe has agreed to join us for a second season in the Liberty A-League,” United Head Coach Njegosh Popovich commented.
“Chloe enjoyed a good first season with the club, providing excellent cover in the centre of midfield as well as showing versatility to play elsewhere when required.
“She has a positive attitude and is eager to learn and we are looking froward to working with her throughout the year.”
Middleton made her Liberty A-League bow with her former club Western Sydney Wanderers against Adelaide United in 2020, starting her first game at this level against Melbourne City, deployed as a forward.
“I am delighted to be able to sign for Canberra United for a second season and am very much looking forward to joining up with the group again,” Middleton said of the announcement.
“I loved my first season with the club. It’s a fantastic place to be and we have some of, if not the best supporters in the league. They always get behind us and make playing at home such an occasion.
“We have a tremendous set of players here and I have really enjoyed playing for Canberra, exploring the City, and seeing what it has to offer. It’s a brilliant environment to learn in and I am excited to get going.”
Canberra United’s 2022/2023 Liberty A-League season begins on Saturday 19 November with a home match against Perth Glory at McKellar Park.
