Melbourne City FC is delighted to announce the re-signing of Football Ferns World Cup hero, Hannah Wilkinson.
Wilkinson returns to City for her third season with the Club, fresh from scoring for New Zealand at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, her third goal on that stage.
Wilkinson’s match-winning goal against Norway at Eden Park saw the Football Ferns register New Zealand’s first-ever World Cup win, Men’s or Women’s, in the opening match of the tournament.
The former City Player of the Year will be looking to build on her goalscoring form as the team strive to go one step further in search of silverware this season.
Hannah Wilkinson said:
“Playing with City is my favourite kind of football and I get so much joy out of playing with this team.
“We play a really nice brand of football here and it’s a great team to play as a striker in with so much service from the quality players further up the pitch.
“The World Cup was an absolute dream. Women’s football is only going to get bigger and bigger off the back of it which is great for the A-Leagues. There are so many young girls who are now interested in Women’s football which is great to see and we hope to have more support than ever this season.”
Head Coach, Dario Vidosic said:
“We are pleased to have Hannah back in City colours. We all saw how she performed on the world’s biggest stage, and we can’t wait to see her form continue into the upcoming season.
“We’re building a really strong force in attack and Hannah’s return will be important for that. She’s a footballer who has demonstrated her quality both in the league and internationally, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of that this season.”
