Wanderers new signing Holly Caspers on the key learnings from her first year in the Liberty A-Leagues competition and striving for success over her next two years at the Red & Black.
Caspers comes to Western Sydney off the back of a very impressive first season in the domestic competition with Canberra United where she featured in 11 matches.
Taking the lessons from her debut season in the competition, Caspers is excited to continue her personal growth.
“Being involved in the A-League Women’s competition helped to take my football career to the next level, and I strive to continue this growth at the Wanderers,” explained Caspers.
“My key learnings from the competition (last season) was the importance of consistency and resilience.
“Not every training or game will be your best, so in those tougher moments focusing on bouncing back and doing the little things correctly is key for personal growth and team success, especially at this level.”
Growing up in Sydney, the move to the Red & Black comes at the right time for Caspers who is excited to push herself to the next level.
“Moving to a new club is always challenging, however I’m most excited for the growth in my football career that the Wanderers will offer and support,” said Caspers.
“Especially with the experience Kat Smith brings as head coach.
“I’m also excited to work with a new group of talented football players, exploring new combination plays as well as developing a strong supportive team environment.”
The attacker has her sights set on playing a pivotal role in the front-third for the Wanderers with her goals set on having a successful season on both a personal and team level.
“There is still a lot for me to achieve as a player on and off the field,” reflected Caspers.
“I want to be a key contributor for the Wanderers in the front-third as well as help build a positive team culture that thrives off success, consistency and resilience.”
The Wanderers kick off their Liberty A-League campaign at the end of next month against Newcastle Jets. You can view the fixtures here.
