TEAM NEWS: City confirm squads for Thursday’s doubleheader

TEAM NEWS: City confirm squads for Thursday’s doubleheader

Melbourne City will host its first home matches of 2024 at AAMI Park this Thursday.

Holding a seven-point buffer on top of the table, our City Women will kick off the evening against Western United.

Following what we hope is another big three points, we’ll move our focus to Aurelio Vidmar’s Men’s team, who will face off against Adelaide United.

Both Head Coaches have now confirmed their squads ahead of Thursday’s fixtures.

Emina Ekic will miss our clash against Western United due to suspension after receiving a second yellow card late in our win on Sunday, and Dario Vidosic has added five young guns to his extended squad.

Leia Varley, Kiera Meyers, Tijan McKenna, Caitlin Karic and Isabella Accardo have all been included and will be hoping to see some time on the pitch.

Over on the Men’s side, Nuno Reis and Emin Durakovic, as well as City Academy product Harry Shillington, have been added to the squad.
