WWL: Ins & Outs for New Year’s Day match against City


Rich Byrne has named his squad for Monday’s Westfield W-League Round 9 match against Melbourne City at ANZ Stadium.

The match is part of a double header, with the match being played prior to the Wanderers taking on City in the Hyundai A-League at 7:50pm.

Tickets to the match are still available here. Remember, kids under 16 go free! 

There are four additions to the squad this week, with Rachel Lowe, Sunny Franco, Katelyn Leadbetter and Alex Huynh all being brought into the side. 

The Wanderers will welcome last season’s Champions City to ANZ Stadium for the first time.

The away side boast a stellar line-up including the likes of Matildas Kyah Simon and Alanna Kennedy.

The Red & Black will look to repeat their feats of last season however, where they downed City in a memorable 2-1 win at Popondetta Park.

With just five rounds remaining after today, the Wanderers know how crucial three points will be as they attempt to qualify for the final series for the first time.
