Chelsie Dawber returns to Reds

Chelsie Dawber has returned to Adelaide United for the Liberty A-League 2022/23 season.

Adelaide United can officially announce forward, Chelsie Dawber, has returned to the Club on loan from Chicago Red Stars.

Having departed United in April for the National Women’s Soccer League outfit, signing a two-ear deal in the States, Dawber re-joins her hometown Club off the back of her first experience overseas.

Prior to departing South Australia, Dawber had her best season for the Club, scoring 10 goals in 15 matches, which brought her overall tally for Adelaide to 17 goals in 42 games.

Speaking about returning to Adelaide United, Dawber said: “I’m very happy to be coming home and playing for the Reds again.

“Last season we were able to achieve our maiden finals appearance and we’re in a very good position to progress even further this season.

Chelsie Dawber celebrates one of her ten goals for Adelaide United last season at Coopers Stadium.

“The squad Adrian (Stenta) and the Club have assembled is one of the strongest I’ve seen and I’m excited to be part of it this season.”

Adelaide United Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “It’s a fantastic acquisition for the Club to be bringing Chelsie back to Adelaide for the 2022/23 season.

“The impact Chelsie had on our team, alongside our other forwards, was crucial in securing our first finals appearance and we’re expecting much more of the same from her and our team this year.

“The foundations we’ve laid right across the playing group are as strong as they’ve ever been and we have high hopes for the level of success we’ll enjoy throughout this season.”
