New Roar Women Head Coach Jake Goodship has locked in his extended 17-player squad for Thursday night’s Westfield W-League season opener against Melbourne Victory.
Two members of the squad are in contention to make their Westfield W-League debuts at Dolphin Stadium on Thursday with star NPLW QLD duo Clare Farrington and Rylee Baisden in the mix to make their first competitive appearances for the Roar in Redcliffe.
Baisden claimed the NPLW QLD Golden Boot last season with 33 goals in 24 appearances & will be keen to continue her scoring form in orange.
After making a solitary appearance in 2014, Isobel Dalton is in contention to add another to her Westfield W-League career, as is Tameka Yallop upon returning to the Club after a season interstate.
