Head Coach, Ivan Karlović, praised the pair’s arrival at the Club, hailing their quality, saying: “To secure the signings of these two very promising, young footballers is fantastic for our team and Adelaide United as club, and we’re very excited to be welcoming them to the Reds.
“Both Mary and Ciara have experience with the national set-ups and this will certainly help us as we head into the new season.
“Their quality will help to lift our standard and I’m sure they’ll be a perfect fit to our dressing room chemistry.
“It will be a new experience for Mary and Ciara playing in a different state, but I’m confident this adventure will help them continue to develop both on and off the park.”
