Brisbane Roar is pleased to welcome back versatile American midfielder Celeste Boureille for another Westfield W-League campaign in Brisbane orange.
Brisbane Roar’s Westfield W-League 2017/18 Player of the Year today became the 18th addition to Jake Goodship’s squad, as the Roar Women go from strength-to-strength just two weeks out from their first fixture.
The 25-year-old is stoked to back for a third season at the Club.
“I’m really happy to be back with the girls,” Boureille said.
“There’s a few new faces, but plenty of familiar ones too so it’ll be nice to have the whole group together again.”
“I think it’s going to be an exciting year. With the bye in the first round, it’ll mean that we get more time to get to know each other and train together as a complete squad.”
Boureille has been one of the most consistent players across the Westfield W-League since joining the Roar ahead of the 2017/18 campaign, playing every minute of the Roar’s back-to-back top-two seasons.
The Roar Women’s defending Players’ Player returns to Brisbane following another NWSL campaign with Portland Thorns alongside Roar teammate Hayley Raso, who is one of six Westfield Matildas locked in for the 2019/20 season.
The Roar Women open their campaign on Thursday, 21 November at Redcliffe’s Dolphin Stadium against the Victory (6:30pm KO).
