LaBonta returns to the Red & Black

The Western Sydney Wanderers are proud to announce the return of US midfielder Lo’eau LaBonta on loan from Utah Royals for the upcoming Westfield W-League season.

LaBonta made her debut in the Westfield W-League last season with the Red & Black, playing in every match and scoring one goal.

The gifted and resilient midfielder joins the club on loan from National Women’s Soccer League club Utah Royals, who finished their inaugural season in fifth. 

LaBonta says she’s excited to be back at her home away from home and is aiming to make history with the club this season. 

“Last year I fell in love with Australia: the beaches, the lifestyle, the team… returning to the Wanderers for a second season is like going back to my home away from home,” said LaBonta.

“I have heard nothing but good things about our new coach Dan Barrett and new squad, so I’m expecting a very competitive and professional environment upon my arrival.


“For me personally my goals for the season always include giving maximum effort and being technically sound.

“For the team, especially with this new and experienced squad, I think a goal everybody is going to buy into and commit to is making the finals.

“With that mentality, I believe this squad will be very successful.”
