Wanderers Medal winner re-signs

Western Sydney Wanderers FC are very proud to announce the re-signing of defender Clare Hunt for the upcoming Liberty A-League season.

Hunt joined the Red & Black at the start of last season from Canberra United and quickly became an integral part of the Wanderers defence.

Despite her season being cut short due to an unfortunate injury, Hunt earned plaudits for her performances and was named the Wanderers Medal winner for 2022 and was on the bench in the PFA’s Team of the Season.

Returning back now for her second season in Western Sydney, Hunt is ready to pick up where she left off.

“Despite the challenges presented last season, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the club. I was given the opportunity and support to continuously develop over the course of the season and this allowed some consistent game time and performances. I am looking forward to continuing this in the 2022/23 Liberty A-League season,” said Hunt.

“It was a privilege to represent the club and to be recognised for my contribution to the last season through the Wanderers Medal. I am excited to build on this form and continue to push myself, and others, within this environment.

“I am hoping to build and be part of a cohesive and successful team environment, that thrives off hard work, resilience and a winning mentality. With this as a building block, there is every potential to be a Finals team and find further success at that point in the season.

“I am extremely grateful to be in a position where I can support and guide my teammates, whilst also learn and develop in their presence. I will continue to strive for excellence and success within this environment, and also encourage others to do so.

“I am excited to start preparing for the upcoming season with my teammates and staff.”
