Wanderers secure Sarah Willacy for upcoming season

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have announced the signing of goalkeeper Sarah Willacy for the Westfield W-League 2020/21 season.

Willacy joins the Red & Black with a wealth of experience, having spent the last six seasons at Adelaide United where she has made close to 40 appearances.

Last season, the shotstopper played in every match for her side and was named in the Westfield Matildas 21-player squad for their international friendly against Chile.

Head coach Dean Heffernan said he was delighted to have Willacy at the Wanderers this season. 

“Sarah is a fantastic keeper with a lot of experience and we’re excited to have her at the club for the coming Westfield W-League season,” said Heffernan.

Willacy said she was looking forward to getting out of her comfort zone with the Wanderers.

“It’s a new environment and I’m looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone and continuing to improve as a player,” said Willacy.

“From the outside looking in, it looks like the Wanderers have set up a very good environment.

“I want to help the team win the league and hopefully keep improving to push for a place in the Westfield Matildas.”
