United signs Jenna Farrow and Grace Wilson

Adelaide United is delighted to announce the signings of goalkeepers, Jenna Farrow and Grace Wilson, ahead of the Liberty A-League 2022/23 season.

Born in Tasmania, 23-year-old Farrow began her senior career in 2016 with Ulverstone Football Club before representing Olympia Warriors in 2019 and 2020. In both seasons at the Warriors Farrow was awarded the Golden Glove, captaining her side to a Premiership in 2020. Last season, Farrow joined South Melbourne in Victoria’s NPLW.

“I’m very excited to be joining Adelaide United for the upcoming season,” Farrow said. “This will be my first time being involved in a professional environment and it’s something I’m really looking forward to.

“Adelaide have made great strides in the last few seasons and I believe we have the depth to continue improving under Adrian (Stenta).”

Meanwhile, Wilson, 17, re-joins the Club on an amateur agreement after signing with the Reds in December 2021.

Commencing her football with Adelaide University, Wilson has recently been representing Football South Australia’s NTC programme as their No. 1 in South Australia’s Women’s NPL following the completion of the Liberty A-League competition in March.

“I’m very happy to be returning to the Reds after the experience I had with the Club last year,” Wilson said. “Being involved with the girls was a great learning-curve for me and it really improved my football.

“We have high-hopes for the new season and we will be working hard to build on what we achieved in 2021/22.”

Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Boosting our goalkeeping stocks with both Jenna and Grace ahead of the upcoming season is fantastic.

“After a lot of hard work and commitment to her craft, Jenna is getting her first chance at A-Leagues level, which will be a great test and one that she will throw herself right into, I’m sure.

“Grace was with us last season and has continued to improve through her time with the NTC this off-season, as well as her involvement with the Junior Matildas. especially considering her age and how early she is in her development.

“Alongside Annie (Annalee Grove), these three young ‘keepers will push each other to develop and provide healthy competition for our entire squad.”
