Hannah Wilkinson to depart Melbourne City 

After three seasons, Melbourne City Women’s all-time leading scorer, Hannah Wilkinson, will depart the Club following the conclusion of her contract. 

Joining City ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, the New Zealand international would go on to have an immediate impact that season with 14 goals in as many appearances, taking home the Melbourne City Player of the Year award alongside Holly McNamara. 

Etching her name into City folklore with a memorable five-goal haul against cross-town rivals, Melbourne Victory, Wilkinson netted a total of 30 goals in 51 appearances to stand clear as the Club’s all-time A-League Women’s leading scorer. 

Head Coach Dario Vidosic spoke about the impact Wilkinson has had during her three seasons at the Club. 

“It’s important to recognise the influence that Hannah has had on our squad. She joined City as an internationally capped player with a wealth of experience and has been a positive role model and mentor for our younger players. 

“Hannah’s performances have earned her great individual accolades, but more importantly have played a big part in what we’ve been able to build towards as a squad, culminating in us winning the Premiers Plate.” 

Hannah Wilkinson reflected fondly on her time in Melbourne. 

“I’d like to thank the fans, my amazing teammates, the coaching staff and everyone at the Club for supporting me during my time at City. 

“To win the Premiers Plate this past season, with this group of girls, was simply incredible and is something that I will never forget. 

“I’ve loved my time at City and wish everyone all the best for next season.” 

We’d like to thank Hannah for her valued contributions to the Club over the last three seasons. Hannah will always be welcome at Melbourne City and we wish her well in her future endeavours.
