Roar star nominated for Queensland Sport award

Brisbane Roar and Westfield Matildas star Katrina Gorry has been named as one of the finalists for the 2017 Queensland Sport Star of the Year award. 

Gorry received the nomination on the back of a standout 2017 in both the Westfield W-League for Brisbane Roar as well as for the Westfield Matildas.

The midfielder represented Australia at both the Algarve Cup in Portugal and the Tournament of Nations in the United States in which she scored in the historic 6-1 win against Brazil.

She has started the Westfield W-League 2017/18 season in sparkling fashion playing every minute of the Roar's campaign so far and netting the season's first goal inside the opening 20 seconds.

"I am honoured to be nominated and recognised alongside some fantastic Queensland sportspeople. I am looking forward to Thursday night's event celebrating Queensland sport," Gorry said.
