“We came really close to reaching our finals objective, and I’m confident we can go one step further this time around.”

Adelaide United’s A-League Women Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Fiona showed last season that she can play at this level.

“Ahead of this season, and with another strong WNPL campaign under her belt, I’m confident Fiona can continue to show her quality and contribute to our team’s overall goals for 2021/22.

“She is a versatile attacker who brings a lot of flexibility to our line-up and we’re very happy to have Fiona as part of our squad again.”
