Adelaide United have confirmed the re-signings of three key players for the Westfield W-League 2018/19 Season.
Emily Condon, Sarah Willacy and Emily Hodgson have all inked one-year deals with the Reds in key signings for coach Ivan Karlović’s squad.
Condon, who first joined the Reds for the 2013/14 Season, featured in all 12 matches for the club last year and scored one goal.
The 20-year-old's impressive campaign led to her selection for the Westfield Matildas, making her debut against Portugal at the Algarve Cup in March.
Hodgson, predominantly a right-back, has accumulated 18 matches since 2016/17 and recently spent the off-season with West Adelaide in the Women’s National Premier League SA.
And goalkeeper Willacy is back in Red for another campaign after making nine appearances last season.
“Emily Condon, Sarah Willacy, and Emily Hodgson are three young footballers with a lot of potential,” Karlović said.
“Each of them have strong individual qualities and, despite all being quite young, they have W-League experience from previous seasons, which will help in our new campaign.
“We saw what these girls are capable of at times last season, and now it’s about all three of them taking their games to the next level.
“Emily Condon started to make some huge inroads last season, being recognised with a call up to the Matildas, and we are expecting her to continue to raise her game.
“Emily Hodgson was recently involved with the Young Matildas and we are really looking forward to her taking her game to another level as well.
“As for Sarah, she has developed into a consistent W-League goalkeeper, who has worked really hard in the off season and I am sure she is ready for another competitive campaign.
“With hard work and determination, I’m sure all three girls can continue to improve their football and be valuable parts of our squad.”
