HENRY HEADS TO CITY: Matildas young gun signs two-year deal

We are excited to announce that 19-year-old Matildas forward, Bryleeh Henry, will join City for the next two years.

Henry, who made her Matildas debut in October last year, joins the club after making 21 appearances for Western Sydney across the last two seasons.

She also recently was part of the Young Matildas squad for the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, playing under Rado Vidosic who was the teams’ Assistant Coach. Henry started all three fixtures and got on the scoresheet in a 3-1 win over Costa Rica.

Vidosic said that Henry will further add to the teams attacking depth and provide another exciting option on the pitch this season.

“We’re excited to be bringing one of the brightest young attackers in the country to our club for the next two years,” Vidosic said.

“She’s a player we’ve been following for a long time and she has always performed well when playing against us.

“Bryleeh has an enormous amount of potential and importantly, she’s also a good person whose values fit well within the culture of the group.”

Henry said she was ‘super excited’ by the opportunity to join City and continue to work under Vidosic.

“Melbourne City’s one of the biggest clubs in Australia and having worked with Rado over the past couple months and talking to him before that as well, I knew this was the best environment for me,” Henry said.

“Personally, I’m just hoping to have a good season and really grow to become the best player that I can possibly be.

“Under Rado and with a great group of girls around me, I think that’s something that’s really achievable.”
