Canberra United endured their worst-ever finish in 2018/19 but the girls from the nation's capital are ready to print their names back among the Westfield W-League elite this season.
Heather Garriock's side get the first chance to demonstrate they mean business against last campaign's defeated Grand Finalists, Perth Glory.
Norwegian striker Elise Thorsnes returns to the green jersey, while veteran striker Leena Khamis is reunited with her sister, goalkeeper Sham, in the ACT.
Perth are much-changed for the new campaign but with a host of talented youngsters on board, and some astute international signings from head coach Bobby Despotovski, the WA-club will be shooting for great heights again.
