Experienced quartet on board for W-League 2020/21 Season
Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Sarah Carroll, Patricia Charalambous, Caitlin Doeglas and Jamie-Lee Gale have all signed with the club for the Westfield W-League 2020/21 Season.
Boasting a combined tally of nearly 150 W-League appearances between them, the talented quartet will bring a wealth of invaluable experience to the Glory squad this year.
Carroll has been a familiar figure in the famous purple since making her debut during the 2011/12 campaign and although usually employed as a defender in the W-League, the former Young Matilda showcased her versatility by scoring nine times while occupying a more advanced role for Northern Redbacks in last season’s NPLW WA competition.
26-year-old defender Charalambous also has a strong Glory pedigree having spent two seasons in the West before joining Cypriot side Apollon Limassol and then returning to Australia to link up with Canberra United last year.
Pacy attacker Doeglas, meanwhile, featured in each of the club’s 12 games last term, claiming three goals which marked her best return in a single season.
Now 24, the Perth local has been a regular member of the squad since 2015 and her goal after just 18 seconds against Western Sydney Wanderers in 2016 remains the second-quickest in Westfield W-League history.
Gale was another regular during 2019/20, the reliable and industrious full-back adding a further eight appearances to the 11 she made in what was her maiden campaign in 2018/19.
Glory Head Coach Alex Epakis believes that all four players will make a very positive impact this year.
"Pat, Sarah, Caitlin and Jamie-Lee bring a strong background of experience from within the W-League and in particular. have a strong connection to the club," he said.
"They each have a firm understanding of the type of environment we are wanting to create this season and will play an important part in helping to build that and guide the younger players on and off the field."
Further player announcements will be made shortly and the Westfield W-League 2020/21 Season fixtures are set to be released early next week.
