ADE­LAIDE U NITED

Inside Sport - - W-League Preview -

For the new sea­son, Ade­laide United will hope their for­wards fire them to new heights, af­ter the 2017-18 sea­son saw the strug­gling Reds take the wooden spoon. The off­sea­son has seen the side bol­ster its at­tack­ing ranks with a re­vamped strike-force com­bi­na­tion of all-time W-League lead­ing scorer Michelle Hey­man, young Amer­i­can for­ward Veron­ica Latsko, plus the ex­pe­ri­enced Ice­landic winger Fan­ndis Fridriks­dot­tir.

The Reds will be hop­ing their cen­tral mid­field finds the right bal­ance of youth and ex­pe­ri­ence, with the mix of Ice­land’s Gunnhildur Jons­dot­tir and Young Matilda Emily Con­don there to pro­vide for their at­tack­ing op­tions. To shore up the side’s de­fence, they have se­cured the ser­vices of Amer­i­can Am­ber Brooks, an ac­com­plished cen­tre-back for the Houston Dash of the NWSL, who will part­ner with cap­tain Emma Checker (be­low).

With only one way up from last sea­son, Ade­laide United will be seek­ing to daz­zle the W-League in their up­com­ing cam­paign with their at­tack­ing prow­ess.
