Wanderers announce the return of Alex Huynh and Alix Roberts

Western Sydney Wanderers FC are delighted to announce the signings of Alex Huynh and Alix Roberts for the upcoming Westfield W-League season.

Alex Huynh returns to the Wanderers after spending a number of years overseas in the US College system with Colorado Buffaloes, as well as a recent stint in the NPL Women’s Queensland competition with Souths United where she featured in 20 matches. 

A member of the Wanderers inaugural Westfield W-League squad, Huynh has previously returned to the Wanderers for the 2017/18 season.

A pacey defender, Huynh said she was looking forward to making some history with the club this season.

“I was part of the original squad when the club became a club and it was honestly such a great experience,” said Huynh.

“Then I went away to college and just had that experience.

“To be able to be part of the new facilities and the new resources (at the Wanderers) is second to none, I feel like no other Westfield W-League team has access to this.

“Dean (Heffernan), Megzi (Michael Beauchamp) and Nul’s (Catherine Cannuli), they’ve all had experience playing or the club so they know exactly what it means to put on the jersey.”

A familiar face at the Wanderers, Alix Roberts returns to the club after a stint overseas in Denmark.

Roberts grew up in regional New South Wales and first played with Parramatta Ladyhawks when she moved to Western Sydney.

Coming off the back of a recent stint in the National Premier League Women’s with Blacktown Spartans, Roberts featured in 23 games and scored 10 goals.

The speedster will embark on her fourth Westfield W-League season with the club this year.

“When the Wanderers came into the league it was always something I aspired to, so getting the call up a few years ago was something quite special to me,” said Roberts.

“I still get those tingles putting on the shirt, so I’m really looking forward to the season ahead.

“I think as a team, we want to be that team to make history. For Wanderers women’s football, we’ve never made a Finals Series so to get our names in a Finals Series for the club would some something really special.”
