Exciting young talent Mary Stanic-Floody has signed a one-year contract with Canberra United for the 2023/24 season as the team from the National Capital continue to add to the squad ahead of the new campaign.

The midfielder made a dozen appearances for Sydney FC in the Liberty A-League during the 2022/23 season, mostly as an impact substitute, and made her starting debut in the competition in a home match against Wellington Phoenix in Round 17.

A box-to-box talent, whose dynamism and enthusiasm characterise her game, Stanic-Floody is sure to thrive in the environment at McKellar Park.

“I am pleased to be able to add Mary to our roster for the forthcoming Liberty A-League season,” Canberra United Head Coach Njegosh Popovich commented.

“As a Young Matildas international, Mary is definitely one for future, as well as the here and now. She has exceptional control, a tough streak which is vital for someone playing in that role, as well as an industry and graft that stands her above many of her peers.

“I have no doubt that our supporters will enjoy watching her all-action performances and that she will be valuable addition to the playing group.”

Stanic-Floody claimed a winner’s medal from finishing top of the Liberty A-League final league standings last season, is looking forward to continuing her burgeoning career in green in Canberra.

“I am very much looking forward to arriving in Canberra and being a part of this great club for the new Liberty A-League season,” Stanic-Floody said.

“As a young footballer I am constantly learning, and I feel that Canberra is the best place for me to take that next step in my career. The club have a wonderful history of promoting young players and giving them the chance, and I am aiming to take mine once it comes.

“I have had experience of playing at McKellar Park in the blue of Sydney FC last season, and the atmosphere was superb. I can’t wait to pull on the green shirt in front of those supporters and have their backing and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so.”
