Glory add Costa Rican international for new season

Perth Glory have added Costa Rican midfielder Raquel Rodriguez Cedeno for the upcoming Westfield W-League season.

Affectionately known as ‘Rocky’, Cedeno heads to Perth from a season at Sky Blue FC in America’s NWSL alongside Sam Kerr and Nikki Stanton.

“I am very excited to be part of Perth Glory this season,” she said.

“I am looking forward to learning from a new culture, teammates, and style of play.”

In her first season at Sky Blue FC, Cedeno’s impressive, all-action displays led to her taking out the 2016 NWSL Rookie of the Year award.

She then added to her long list achievements in June this year by scoring the fastest goal in NWSL history after just 24 seconds.

Glory fans will be hoping that Rodriguez makes a similarly spectacular start to her Westfield W-League career.

Glory’s opening Westfield W-League clash is at nib Stadium on October 27th in a grand final rematch against Melbourne City.
