Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed the signing of midfielder Bianca Galic for the upcoming W-League season.
The young gun joins the club from Canberra United where she played in her first W-League season.
Galic has been a familiar face in the NSW National Premier League Women’s competition where she has plied her trade at Sydney University since she was 14.
The 21-year-old will bolster the Wanderers midfield as new head coach Catherine Cannuli prepares for the 2021/22 season.
Cannuli welcomed Galic to the club, commending her work ethic and development over recent seasons.
“Bianca is a very hard-worker and understands what we are trying to build here at the Wanderers,” said Cannuli.
“Bianca has gone from strength to strength in the National Premier League competition and we have been keeping an eye on her development over the last few years.
“It was fantastic to see her break into the W-League competition last season with Canberra and we are very excited to have her now in Red & Black.”
Galic said she was delighted to play for the Wanderers this W-League season.
“My football development started in Sydney at a very young age so to be representing a Sydney-based team in the W-League is something you dream of when you’re in the youth system,” said Galic.
“It’s great to be able to tick that off my list this year and have the support of my family and friends at each game in Western Sydney.
“The Wanderers have been known to always fight for every match, every goal and every point and that’s something that resonates with me – it’s a direct reflection of the spirit and culture of the club.
“These last few seasons, the Wanderers have been re-building a squad that’s in contention for Finals football and I’m excited to help the club and (head coach) Catherine Cannuli get there this season.
“I know Cath has high expectations of where she wants to take the club and I’d like to help push the team to achieve what we set out to do.
“It would be great on a personal and club level to make another Finals Series appearance!”
