Nevin looking forward to breaking more records

Wanderers defender Courtney Nevin on the club's culture and breaking more records this Westfield W-League season. 

The 18-year-old joined the Red & Black two seasons ago and has quickly become one of the most integral players in the Wanderers squad, featuring in 22 out of 25 matches.

"Last season was an amazing opportunity for me," said Nevin.

"Making the starting line-up each week and playing the full 90 minutes - I really enjoyed myself. 

"The environment and culture within the club was amazing, our coaching staff and players really gelled well together."


Being one of the youngest players in the Wanderers squad last season, Nevin relished the guidance from some of the more experienced players around her and used it towards her advantage. 

"I've been with the club for three years and in that time I've had the privilege of playing with some of the best players not only in Australia but from around the world," said Nevin.

"This allowed me to gain valuable experience against some fantastic players and they have been excellent role models for me to follow."

After seven seasons, the Red & Black finally came of age in the Westfield W-League last season, smashing all sorts of records on the way to qualifying for the Finals for the first time.

Looking ahead to the 2020/21 season, Nevin believes that the Wanderers this time can go all the way. 

"I'd like to get as much game time as I can which is necessary for my growth on the pitch and I think it's the Wanderers year to be Champions of the Westfield W-League," said Nevin.

"We broke a lot of records last season so it would be amazing to break some more."
