Roar re-sign striker Crummer for new W-League season

Brisbane Roar is excited to announce the re-signing of former W-League Golden Boot winner Larissa Crummer as the team continues to take shape.

Crummer, 25, becomes Brisbane's seventh confirmed squad member for the 2021/22 season in another boost to Garrath McPherson's side.

The 20-cap Matilda rejoined the Roar earlier this year and marked her return from a broken leg by scoring in a 4-0 win over Perth Glory in February, her first W-League appearance in over two years.

"It was a surreal feeling," said Crummer, who grew up on the Sunshine Coast. "I missed being out on the field and having that gameday feeling.

"I'm excited. Playing in front of family and friends is definitely one of the main reasons I've decided to come back. Obviously I wasn't there for the whole of last season.

"I don't think Brisbane has ever really had a problem with people gelling or new people coming in. It's quite a family-orientated team. That's one of the main reasons I also wanted to come back to Brisbane.

"I got a taste of the W-League again and I'm really excited to be back."


Crummer has spent recent months enjoying a spell with NPL Queensland side Capalaba FC, scoring nine goals in 11 games to date for a team that includes several Roar team-mates.

McPherson said he was pleased to have yet another talented Queenslander on board.

"It's exciting to celebrate the return of Larissa to the team for the upcoming season," McPherson said.

"She grew up on the Sunshine Coast and has gone on to play at the highest levels in the sport.

"Larissa provides a physical presence across a front line and I can't wait to see the trouble she causes opposition central defenders.

"She has a wealth of football knowledge to share with the team and I'm looking forward to seeing her team-mates benefit from that insight."
