Sydney FC have bolstered their Westfield W-League stocks with the signing of Canadian international Lindsay Agnew for the remainder of the season.
Agnew arrives having most recently represented the Houston Dash in the United States’ National Women’s Soccer League, appearing alongside current Sky Blues Sofia Huerta and Veronica Latsko.
The 24-year-old attacker also represented Canada at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and has accrued 14 caps in total for her nation.
The Canadian's signing comes following the departures to the English FA Women's Super League of influential Westfield Matildas duo Caitlin Foord (Arsenal) and Chloe Logarzo (Bristol City).
Having never previously featuring in the Westfield W-League, Agnew told sydneyfc.com that she is excited by the challenge ahead as the third-placed Sky Blues continue their push toward the Finals Series.
“Sydney FC are one of the leaders in the W-League and I’m so excited to be able to represent them,” she said.
“I’ve heard nothing but great things about the club from Sofia and Veronica and I’m looking to now leave my mark in Sky Blue.”
Head Coach Ante Juric said Agnew would be a welcome addition to the Sky Blues for the run in to the end of the season.
“Lindsay brings another dimension to our squad, she’s adept in both attack and defence, and I’m looking forward to having her for this important part of the season,” he said.
“Every match is crucial at this stage of the season and I believe Lindsay will have a great impact on our push to defend our title.”
The Sky Blues have also re-signed promising starlet Julia Vignes, a member of the club's 2018/19 Westfield W-League Championship winning squad, for the remainder of the season.
The 17-year old attacker featured most recently this season as an injury replacement on the bench away to Perth Glory in December 2019.
