Abdul Massih named in 30-Player Strong Squad for CommBank Junior Matilda’s June Training Camp

Ella Abdul-Massih has been named in head coach Rae Dower’s 30-player squad for an upcoming training camp in Wollongong.

Held from 13 – 17 June, Dower has invited eight new faces into the training environment in her third CommBank Junior Matildas assembly of 2022.   

The latest additions increase the number of players provided with the opportunity to demonstrate their talent to 52 from across the nation.  Footballers from NSW, Northern NSW, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia will be put through their paces across five days.   

“This camp gives the players another opportunity to showcase their talents on and off the pitch. We’ve had over 60 players involved from this age cohort between Junior and Young Matilda’s activities over the past 3 months and I’m just so excited for the rest of the country to see some of these young players on the international stage.” Dower said. 

“We’re looking to finalise our selection for the upcoming AFF tournament to be held in Indonesia.  This group of players are highly talented and they’ve stayed highly motivated throughout the last 2 years.  

“The staff and I are looking forward to adding another layer to their football development over the next week in Wollongong where we’ll see them take another step towards realising their football dreams.” 

June’s camp will feature players born in 2005 and 2006 as Dower continues to deepen the player pool for the junior women’s national team.
