Brisbane Roar is pleased to announce goalkeeper Georgie Worth as its fourth W-League re-signing and sixth confirmed squad member for the 2021/22 season.
The Brisbane-born 24-year-old has recommitted to the Roar after breaking into the starting XI last term, making nine appearances and recording four clean sheets.
"It's nice to see some familiar faces from last season but also some girls returning to the Roar after a couple of years," Worth said.
"It seems like we're putting together a competitive squad with a lot of Queenslanders, which is nice to see.
"Some of the players have been playing together in the off-season, building that chemistry. That should definitely translate into the W-League, which is good.
"I worked with Garrath [McPherson] when he was assistant to Mel Andreatta and I'm really excited he's now taken the role of Head Coach – I think he's a great coach and a great person.
"I think he'll be able to build a really competitive environment, which will benefit a lot of the younger players who are stepping into the team.
"It's going to be a challenge without some of the experienced players but I'm looking forward to it and I think it will be nice to see how it all comes together."
McPherson said he was "very happy" to secure Worth's signature for the upcoming campaign.
"George has been an integral part of the Brisbane Roar Women's program for many years and will provide experience and leadership both on and off the field," he said.
"She has an ability to make all members of a team feel welcome and has a high degree of empathy. I am sure that our new team members will benefit from the support she provides.
"George also has a great working relationship with our Goalkeeper Coach Brody Sams, and I am excited to see how she continues to improve this coming season.
"I know the Queensland football community will be just as happy as me that she is returning in goals!"
