“I can’t wait to meet my new teammates and the rest of the wonderful Reds family, and I hope we can all achieve great things together this season.”

Adelaide United’s A-League Women Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Reona is a player that boasts a lot of experience and technical prowess.

“She is a hard-working midfielder and we believe will provide a lot stability and composure to our squad.”
