Wanderers sign Sutton, Franco and Price for Westfield W-League season

The Western Sydney Wanderers are proud to announce the signings of Rosie Sutton, Sunny Franco and Olivia Price for the upcoming Westfield W-League season.

Striker Rosie Sutton joins the club from Westfield W-League side Perth Glory after a consistent season that saw her appear in 14 matches and score seven goals.

The pacey attacker has had a wealth of senior experience playing in both the Westfield W-League and Icelandic Úrvalsdeild kvenna.

Sutton said she was looking forward to the new experience of playing at the Wanderers in front of her family and friends.

“I actually have family and friends that live in Western Sydney, in Blacktown, so the move to the Wanderers has really worked out well for me,” said Sutton.

“Being close to my family is something that I haven’t ever had before in the W-League.

“I’m a striker and I scored seven goals last season with Perth Glory so I really want to score some more this season.

“I want to help take the Wanderers to the Semi Finals so hopefully we can achieve that this season.”

Midfielder Olivia Price makes the switch from cross-town rivals Sydney FC having spent her entire Westfield W-League career with the club.

The Glenhaven junior has represented Australia at both the U17 and U19 level and is determined to have her best season yet with the Red & Black.

“A big influence originally for me to move to Western Sydney was [coach] Rich [Byrne], he contacted me early on to come on board and join the club,” explained Price.

“I’m hoping to have one of the best seasons in my career and for the team as well.”

Versatile attacker Sunny Franco also joins the Red & Black from Westfield W-League side Brisbane Roar.

Known for her pace, confidence and technical ability, Franco will be an exciting addition to the Wanderers squad.

20-year-old Franco is driven to making a difference for the Wanderers this season.

“Playing for a Westfield W-League team is something very special and to be in a new environment this season with the Wanderers is something that I am really looking forward to.

“I’m really hoping to get more game time, score more goals, work on my skills and make my way into the Matildas squad this season.”
