As the decade draws to a close, we want YOU to tell us who should be in Canberra United’s Team of the Decade!
Over the next two weeks, you can vote for which goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders and forwards will be inducted into the Team of the Decade.
The final make-up of the team will be determined by fans with the highest voted players placed into a 1-4-3-3 formation.
First up, it’s the goalkeepers.
Lydia Williams signed with Canberra United for the inaugural Westfield W-League season in 2008. Williams played 68 games for the United, becoming United’s six most-capped player in its history.
Williams kept 26 clean sheets during her seven seasons with United, cementing herself in the club’s record books.
American Chantel Jones signed with Canberra United in 2014 to fill the big shoes left by Lydia Williams, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury during the off-sesaon. Despite playing just one season with United, she became a club legend due to her grand final heroics.
During United’s grand final against Perth Glory on 21 December 2014, Jones saved a penalty in the 76th minute, ensuring United claimed their second Westfield W-League title.
In October 2012, Burke signed for Canberra United as a back-up keeper for Lydia Williams, who was recovering at the time from knee reconstruction surgery.
After two seasons with the club, Burke joined Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne City before returning to Canberra for the 2016/17 season.
Former Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers shot-stopper Shamiran Khamis signed with Canberra United for Season 11 of the Westfield W-League.
Despite being only 24-years-old, Khamis is in her ninth season in the league. A fan favourite at McKellar Park, Khamis was named Canberra United’s Players’ Player in her first season with Canberra United.
In 2012, Arnold joined Canberra United from Perth Glory ahead of the 2012–13 W-League to replace an injured Lydia Williams.
Arnold kept four clean sheets in just 10 appearances for Canberra United, before moving to Western Sydney Wanderers the following year.
