Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed the signing of defender Clare Hunt for the upcoming W-League season.
Hunt returned to the W-League last season with Canberra United after a two-season lay-off due to injuries.
The 22-year-old had a breakout first two seasons with Canberra prior to that and comes to the Wanderers with a point to prove and stronger than ever.
The defender has 12 W-League matches to her name and will be looking to add on more in her first season at the Red & Black.
Head coach Catherine Cannuli welcomed Hunt to the club.
“We welcome Clare to the club after what has been a very difficult couple of years for her career,” said Cannuli.
“It was fantastic to see Clare return to the pitch in the W-League last season and we are so excited to see her don the Red & Black hoops for the upcoming season.”
Hunt said she was ready to immerse herself in a positive and intense training environment at the Wanderers.
“I am extremely excited to have my first season at the Western Sydney Wanderers,” said Hunt.
“I was drawn to the Wanderers knowing of the professionalism of the club and the dedication of coaching staff to offer strong support and resources.
“Being at the Wanderers this season will give me an opportunity to pursue work and study, while immersing myself in a positive and intense training environment.
“This season I want to develop as a footballer and take in as much of this experience as I possibly can. For me, this looks like consistency in performance and utilising the endless resources to develop myself and players around me.”
