We’ve added two more pieces to the puzzle with fan favourites Hayley Raso and Celeste Boureille both locked in for Westfield W-League Season 11.
The pair return to Brisbane for a second straight season down under after being key members of the Roar’s rise to a third Westfield W-League Premiership last season.
Both players join BRFC on loan from NWSL outfit Portland Thorns FC.
“It’s wonderful to have our Portland Thorns duo back with us for season 2018/19. Celeste and Hayley are highly respected and key members of our talented squad,” Head Coach Mel Andreatta said.
Boureille, 24, is a huge addition to Andreatta’s side after taking out the Roar Women’s Player of the Season last campaign & following up with an impressive campaign for the Thorns in 2018.
“After an outstanding NWSL campaign, Celeste goes from strength to strength and will be our midfield general in season 11,” Andreatta continued.
Queenslander Raso, also 24, will return with her trademark ribbon for a third season in Brisbane orange.
“We’re pleased to have Hayley back in Orange. She is an exciting footballer who I’m sure our fans can’t wait to see out on the park terrorising opposition backlines,” Andreatta continued.
The Portland Thorns duo join a number of NWSL players to have signed on the dotted line for the Westfield W-League season in Brisbane, alongside Japanese World Cup winner Yuki Nagasato & Orlando Pride pair Carson Pickett & Chioma Ubogagu.
