Head Coach Rado Vidosic has added new-signing Hailie Mace to the extended squad ahead of City’s clash with Newcastle.

Mace will be in line to make her W-League debut for the Club, after joining City only a matter of days after she was selected with Pick 2 in the first round at the 2019 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) college draft.

It’s a must-win clash for the reigning champions as they look to keep their finals hopes alive.

The final squad will be cut down by two, 60 minutes prior to kick-off on Sunday. City host Newcastle at C.B. Smith Reserve on Sunday 20 January, kick-off 7:30pm. Get your tickets here.
