Brisbane Roar is pleased to announce the signing of young American talent Shea Connors for the remainder of the Westfield W-League 2019/20 season.
The young striker joins the Roar from NPLW QLD outfit Logan Lightning after starring for the Club in 2019.
Connors netted 25 goals from 15 NPLW matches in 2019, bagging five hat-tricks including a remarkable six-goal haul in just her third game for the Club.
The former St John’s University footballer says the opportunity to represent the Club is a ‘dream come true.’
“I’m so excited. I’m really grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait for what’s to come,” Connors said.
“It’s like a dream come true. The [Westfield] W-League compares a lot to the NWSL which is somewhere I want to reach one day.
“To play with people I’ve looked up to will be an unreal experience and I’m ready to take the opportunity.”
“I’m really grateful for Logan Lightning bringing me to Australia, giving me the chance to start my football journey here & allowing me to pursue this opportunity.”
Head Coach Jake Goodship says it’s great to have a player of Connors’ quality locked in for the remainder of the season.
“We’re stoked to have Shea on board. She’s obviously an immense talent who has shown in the NPLW QLD just how dangerous she can be in front of goal,” Goodship said.
“Hopefully she’ll play a key part in our run to another finals berth.”
