Adelaide United is excited to announce the re-signing of Charlotte Grant for the Westfield W-League 2020/21 season.
Grant, 19, first joined the Reds in 2018, accumulating a total of 23 appearances across her first two campaigns with the Club.
The defender, capable of playing on the wing, has spent the offseason in Sydney with the Future Matildas program.
Speaking on putting pen-to-paper with the Club while with the Future Matildas, Grant said: “I’m really excited to be returning to Adelaide United for the upcoming season.
“I feel really grateful to be given another opportunity with my hometown team and want to repay the faith the Club has shown in me.
“I’ve been training hard this off-season with the Future Matildas in a really high-intensity environment that is really pushing me to develop my game and it’s made me hungry to return to the Reds for our new season.
“With Adrian (Stenta) as our new Head Coach, I’m looking forward to the ideas he’s going to bring to our football and I’m sure it’ll be a smooth transition considering he’s been our Assistant Coach previously and also with Ivan (Karlovic) becoming the Club’s Head of Women’s Football.”
The Club’s Westfield W-League Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, praised the progression Grant has showed in each of her two seasons in the team.
“Charlotte has made great strides forward so early into her career,” Stenta said. “As a Young Matilda, she is an important player for us and someone that will continue to improve with more game time.”
Adelaide United’s Head of Women’s Football, Ivan Karlović, added: “Charlotte is our first re-signing ahead of the 2020/21 season.
“We know the quality she possesses and we’re delighted to have her commit to another season with us.
“We’ll have more announcements in the coming days which we’re eager to share as we begin preparations for the new season.”
