ADELAIDE U NITED
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.
