Adelaide United is delighted to announce the signing of midfielder, Emma Stanbury, for the A-League Women 2021/22 season.

Stanbury has previous A-League Women’s experience, playing two seasons in the competition with Newcastle Jets in 2016/17 and later Canberra United in the 2019/20 iteration.

The 30-year-old has also spent time in the 1st – NPL NSW Women’s league with the likes of Sydney University, North West Sydney Women’s Koalas, and Bankstown City.

Stanbury returned to the nation’s capital last year from Bankstown City where she had a brief stint with Tuggeranong United, before spending this campaign at West Canberra Wanderers, scoring two goals in nine games in the CF Women’s top flight.

Speaking on joining the Club, Stanbury said: “Signing with Adelaide is a really exciting opportunity for me.

“I’ve spoken to Adrian (Stenta) and I’m really impressed by the project they’re continuing to build and becoming a part of that plan.

“We have a relatively young, but talented, squad so I’m looking forward to bringing my experience and gelling with the group as soon as possible.”

Adelaide United’s A-League Women’s Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Emma is smart footballer with lots of experience and I think she’ll be a big inclusion to our team.

“I believe we’ve built a really promising and competitive squad that will give us a great chance for success and Emma will definitely compliment us well.

“We’re just a couple more signings away from completing the squad, so stay tuned for further announcements over the coming days.”
