Worts commits to Reds for 2022/23 before joining Norwegian club

Adelaide United is delighted to announce English forward, Fiona Worts, has signed on with the Club for the Liberty A-League 2022/23 season.

In the meantime, Worts will join Norwegian top-flight club LSK Kvinner FK during the offseason before returning for her third campaign with Adelaide.

The 26-year-old was sensational for the Reds, scoring a prolific 13 goals in 14 regular season matches, on her way to claiming the competition’s Golden Boot as United experienced its most successful season in its history.

Speaking about committing to Adelaide and her impending move to the Toppserien, Worts said: “The season just gone was the best of my career so far and I hope I can build on that.

“While we did get eliminated in the first week of the finals, we still had a really good season and one that we’re proud of.

“I still feel there is unfinished business in the A-League and I will return to Adelaide with this incredible squad and have another go at competing for a title.

“I’m also looking forward to challenging myself and spending time in Norway during the offseason in a tough league which will only help improve my game and make me a better player when I return to Adelaide.”

Adelaide United’s Liberty A-League Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Retaining Fiona (Worts) for next season was a high priority of ours because she is a very important player for us.

“Fiona had a fantastic year not just from a scoring perspective, but she was an excellent attacking outlet with her hold-up play allowing her to combine superbly with her fellow teammates.

“The opportunity to play abroad in Norway is also exciting for her and one that I’m sure will be extremely beneficial for her continued development.”

In two seasons with Adelaide United, Worts has accumulated 24 appearances, notching 15 goals and seven assists.
