City skipper, Rebekah Stott, has been named Captain of the A-League Women All Stars ahead of Friday night’s clash with English powerhouse Arsenal FC.

City’s Premiership-winning Captain will be joined in the leadership team by A-League Women’s Golden Boot winner and Matildas international, Michelle Heyman, who has been named Vice-Captain of the side.

Following the announcement, Stott reflected on the honour, with her sights set on Friday’s clash.

“I’m incredibly honoured to be voted by my peers as the Captain of this team,” she said. “We’ve got a great group of girls, with so much experience and quality, and I’m so stoked to lead this side alongside someone like Michelle [Heyman].”

We’re all buzzing for the game on Friday, it’s obviously going to be a huge test against one of the best teams in the world, but it’s one we’re really looking forward to.

Led by City’s inaugural double-winning Women’s coach, Joe Montemurro, it’s been a week full of familiar faces for the City and All Stars Captain.

“It’s been so nice to re-unite with Joe, who was my first coach at the Club, and he’s been amazing,” Stott said. “It mustn’t be easy coaching a side who has never played together, but he’s made it such an enjoyable week and we’ve all learned so much.”

“With Joe as our coach, Steph Catley and Kim Little playing for Arsenal and Jodie Taylor there as part of their staff, it’s been like a reunion of sorts for our City team – it really is a testament to the quality of people we’ve had here at City and I can’t wait for Friday.”

City will have six stars in action on Friday night, with Mathew Leckie, Tolgay Arslan and Kai Trewin taking on Newcastle United, before Stott, Hannah Wilkinson and Rhianna Pollicina host Arsenal.
