Jackson: We are looking to build on success


Melbourne City FC midfielder Amy Jackson says the Club is determined to push for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Westfield W-League championship ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Ahead of the new season, Head Coach Rado Vidosic has signalled his intent with the signing of two Matildas internationals, Tameka Butt and Elise Kellond-Knight.

Jackson, who has been a member of the squad since the Club’s inaugural season, says she is looking forward to playing alongside the Club’s newest acquisitions.

“I’m excited to train and learn from Tameka and Elise, I think they’re going to be great additions to the team,” Jackson said.

Among the host of big names returning to the Club, Jackson has signalled Japanese international Yukari Kinga as the player she is most looking forward to playing alongside.

“I’m really excited for Yukari Kinga to come back. She is the ultimate professional, a great person and player,” she said.

The four-time champion has encouraged City fans to support the team this season as they push for a tilt at their fourth championship trophy.

“We’ve won the last three campaigns and we’re looking to build on that,” she said.

“We want to play a good brand of football… Rado has had a really big emphasis on the technical and the tactical side of our game.

“Get involved anyway that you can, whether it’s coming to the games or supporting the club at family days,” she added.

“We have incredible players within our team, and we’re hoping to showcase some brilliant football and go for a fourth title.”
