Chauvet commits to Wanderers

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today signed defender Margaux Chauvet for the Westfield W-League 2020/21 season.

Chauvet is set to star in her very first Westfield W-League season with the 17-year-old plying her trade in the National Premier League women’s this year with Illawarra Stingrays.

Wanderers head coach Dean Heffernan said he was delighted to have Margaux on board.

“Margaux is a very talented young player and we’re looking forward to seeing what she can contribute to the team this season.”

The central defender said she was very excited for her first season in the W-League with the Wanderers. 

“I’ve played with Caitlin Cooper, Danika Matos and Chloe Middleton and that was a great opportunity as I got to work with them and grow as a player watching them play last season with Stingrays,” said Chauvet. 

“I’m so grateful, it’s the best opportunity and hopefully I can bring something to the team that is different. 

“I definitely want to grow as a player and do my best for the club. It’s a big step up, you can clearly see the intensity at training and energy. It’s a lot faster, a lot more pressure and it’s very exciting and what I’ve been working for.”
