Biography

Growing up in Wauchope in the North of NSW, Caitlin began life as a defender playing for Cootamundra and the local Wauchope football side before signing with Central Coast Mariners as Captain in the inaugural Westfield W-League season.

Following the club’s demise, Caitlin moved to Canberra United where she won the Premiership and Championship in their undefeated 2011/12 season.

Caitlin was announced as a Wanderers player in 2013 and made her debut against Adelaide United in Round One of the Westfield W-League 2013/14 season before being instilled as Wanderers captain for the 2014/15 season.

Fresh from being recalled to the Matildas squads for the first time in almost three years, Caitlin capped off a brilliant personal week when she scored her first goal in Red & Black in Round 1 of the 2015/16 season against Adelaide United. It was looking to be the best season of Caitlin's career until a freak injury sustained in a Matildas match against China saw her ruled out for the rest of the year.

Caitlin continued her captaincy in the 2016/17 season and a number of fantastic performances saw her win Westfield W-League Player of the Year at Wanderers Medal 2017.

Following a season with the club's cross-city rivals, Sydney FC, Caitlin returned back to the Red & Black for the 2018/19 Westfield W-League season.
