Inspirational Roar Women captain Clare Polkinghorne will return for yet another Westfield W-League season at BRFC.
One of few players remaining in the competition from its inaugural campaign, Polkinghorne will don the Brisbane orange again in Season 11.
BRFC’s games record holder is excited to return home following the NWSL in the United States with the Houston Dash, and has her sights set on more silverware.
“I’m excited to be part of the Brisbane Roar Football Club for another season. I’m proud to represent the Roar and to play for this great club,” Polkinghorne said.
“We fell one step short of our goals last season and I’m excited for the opportunity to build on what we achieved last season.”
Polkinghorne will add to her record 115 Westfield W-League appearances when the Roar host the talented Perth Glory in Round 1.
Known for her leadership qualities both on and off the field, Head Coach Mel Andreatta says having a player of Polkinghorne’s calibre is sure to bring both short & long-term benefits for the Roar Women.
“I’m delighted to have our Captain and one of our key leaders back on board for season 11. Clare bleeds Orange,” Andreatta said.
“Polks is a player that our younger members learn from and all her teammates respect and appreciate the important contribution she makes week in, week out.”
The Roar begin Season 11 on Sunday, 28 October in a double-header at Suncorp Stadium. Get your tickets HERE.
