Travis Dodd

Travis Dodd is a Club legend through and through, taking over the captaincy from Michael Valkanis in July 2008.

Dodd was deadly in front of goal, scoring 41 in 183 matches and still sits fourth in appearances on United’s records list. 

Dodd’s crowning moment was a phenomenal headed assist for Fabian Barbiero to secure an unassailable 3-0 first-leg home win against Bunyodkor in the 2008 AFC Asian Champions League Semi-Final. 

He also scored the Club’s first Champions League hat-trick against Dong Tam Long An FC in the campaign prior, admirably leading Adelaide on its previously uncharted and successful AFC adventure.

Awer Mabil

Enormously talented, Awer Mabil delighted Coopers Stadium immediately with his pace and trickery from his debut in 2013.

The Kenyan-born South Australian winger would go on to play 47 quality games for United, scoring eight goals and creating four before Europe came calling.

Mabil started in United’s first FFA Cup triumph against Perth Glory and has since become a regular Socceroo after earning his stripes with his home Club.

Named 2023 Young Australian of the Year for the work he does with his brother, Awer Bul on their Barefoot to Boots Charity, Mabil is a top role model in the game.

Ben Halloran

Halloran is an intelligent midfielder withmany facets to his game.

The adopted South Australian won back-to-back FFA Cups in 2018 and 2019 and was awarded the Aurelio Vidmar Medal for a stellar 2020/21 campaign.

The winger, literally able to play in any position, is dangerous on both flanks predominantly used as a right winger in Carl Veart’s team.

Just one of Halloran’s crafty goals was an audacious lobbed effort over a scrambling Tom Glover to claw back a 2-2 draw at Coopers Stadium in 2021, showcasing his skill.

Fábio Ferreira

Fábio Ferreira played with immense flair, scoring his debut league goal on 23 November 2012 in a 2-1 away victory over Sydney FC, courtesy of a sharp drive into the left corner of the net from the right angle.

Just two weeks later he became an instant Hindmarsh Hero, assisting the first goal and netting his team’s second with an outrageous outside of the foot effort in a 4–2 rivalry derby win against Melbourne Victory at home.

With 13 goals in his 51 Adelaide United games, the ridiculously powerful winger left for stints at Central Coast, Sydney FC, and Perth Glory before finishing his time in the A-League.

Chelsie Dawber

Chelsie Dawber is one of United’s greatest-ever attackers, leading the club’s Liberty A-League goal-scoring tally with 22 from her 58 matches played.

Dawber made her debut in November 2017 in a 2–1 loss against Western Sydney Wanderers coming on as a substitute for Emily Condon.

After building steadily for a few more years, Dawber had a breakout 2021/22 season, scoring 10 goals with three assists, which saw Adelaide into its first-ever finals campaign.

Now seventh for all-time appearances, Dawber is an Adelaide United legend in the making.
