Butt 'honoured' to reach Brisbane Roar century

Brisbane Roar midfielder Tameka Butt believes the Westfield W-League will only continue to improve as she prepares to play her 100th match.

The Australia international will notch up a century of top-flight appearances when Roar host Adelaide United on Friday as part of a double-header at Suncorp Stadium.

And the two-time championship winner, who boasts the second most goals in the competition’s history, is looking forward to joining team-mate Clare Polkinghorne in the 100-game club.

"It’s been 10 years in the making so I’m definitely excited and honoured to do it with Brisbane," Butt said.

"I was 16 [when the W-League was introduced] and I was stoked just to have a national league and to play against players from around the country.

"To see it grow into what it is today, the professionalism and the players we attract from overseas, it’s great and I think it’s onwards and upwards."

Tameka Butt has represented the Westfield Matildas at two World Cups.

Roar appear well in contention for a return to the top four this season after taking six points from their opening three fixtures.

Butt is confident there is plenty more still to come from Mel Andreatta’s side.

"I think we’ve had a great start to the season and at the same time we’re still building as a team," she said.

"We definitely haven’t seen the best of us yet. It’s shaping up to be an exciting season and hopefully a good one for us."
