Team News: City squads confirmed for Super Saturday

A huge Saturday is ahead for City fans… Both our Men’s and Women’s squads will be in action in back-to-back fixtures, set to play their biggest games of the season.

Our City Women kick off all the action at our home of Casey Fields in a do-or-die final.

Not only will our season be on the line when 3pm rolls around this Saturday, but it’s also a Melbourne Derby.

All City Members will be able to access the match for free, while non-members can click here to purchase their tickets.

It’s set to be a similar squad to what we’ve seen in recent weeks, with young midfielder Isabella Accardo promoted to the extended squad in the only change from last time out.

Looking across to Rado Vidosic’s Men’s squad, we’ll welcome back captain Scott Jamieson after he served his one-match suspension in the win over Wellington on Easter Monday.

His inclusion brings some crucial added experience to the locker room ahead of a clash which could see City taking out a history-making third consecutive Premiership.

Young defender Sebastian Esposito has also been promoted to the senior squad for the trip to Gosford.

Midfielder Richard van der Venne continues to push his case for a return to the squad but has been given another week to continue to build up his fitness.
