City sign midfielder Leticia McKenna on two-year deal

Melbourne City FC is pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Leticia McKenna until the end of the 2022/23 A-League Women season.

The 19-year-old joins City from Brisbane Roar where she made 12 appearances in 2020/21.

McKenna has a total of 37 appearances in what was previously the W-League and has also scored three goals since making her debut in 2018.

A part of the Young Matildas program, McKenna is highly technically skilled and looks set to fit well into Rado Vidosic’s squad.

Head Coach Rado Vidosic said:

“We’re excited to have Leticia join us for the next two years.

“She’s a very determined young player who already has lots of experience at the level.

“Leticia will provide creativity in the front third and is a hard-working player both in and out of possession. We see her suiting the City style of play perfectly and expect her to play a big role for us this season.”

Leticia McKenna said:

“I want to be challenged and continue to be pushed outside my comfort zone, and I feel City is going to give me that.

“I have heard so many great things about the Club, the facilities, coaching staff and its approach to player wellbeing.

I am really excited to work with Rado and the potential of what we can achieve for the fans and ourselves this season with a good mixture of youth and experience within the squad.”
