Queenslander Rebekah Horsey signs on ahead of 2020/21 campaign

Brisbane Roar has added another homegrown talent to its Westfield W-League squad with midfielder Bek Horsey signing on for the upcoming campaign.

Horsey made her Westfield W-League debut for Canberra United in the 2019/20 season on the back of spells in the NPL QLD Women’s with University of Queensland FC, a premiership and championship-winning 2019 season with Lions FC and most recently with Mitchelton FC in 2020.

The Ipswich-born midfielder also had a college stint with the University of Houston earlier in her career.

The chance to play for her hometown club was an opportunity the Queenslander was eager to jump at.

“I was excited to get the opportunity to play in the [Westfield] W-League last season and even more so this season to play for my home club. It’s something I’ve been working towards for a long time,” Horsey said.

“I’ve been watching Brisbane Roar for a long time now and it’s great to have the chance to train with and play alongside players I grew up watching and idolising.

“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to playing in front of a Brisbane home crowd as well.

“We’re all working hard, really trusting in what the coaches are doing and how they want us to play. We’re learning, and learning quickly, to be ready for that Round One game.

Head Coach Jake Goodship added: “It’s terrific to have another proud Queenslander locked in for this season.

“Rebekah earned her chance in the [Westfield] W-League last season, and after another terrific campaign here in Queensland, we’re really looking forward to seeing her play in the W-League again – this time in her hometown, in front and family and friends.”

Brisbane Roar opens its Westfield W-League campaign on Monday, 28 December on the road against Newcastle Jets before its first home game at Lions Stadium on Sunday, 3 January against Sydney FC.
