Adelaide United today announced the return of midfielder, Dylan Holmes for the whole of the 2021/22 A-League Women season.
The 24-year-old re-joins the Club after a stint with Swedish outfit BK Häcken where she accumulated 15 appearances across all competitions.
Holmes previously amassed 41 games and scored three goals with the Reds, and her sensational 2020/21 campaign earned a move to Sweden back in March 2021.
The central midfielder also later received her first Matildas cap in April against the Netherlands.
Speaking after re-signing with Adelaide, Holmes said: “I’m really looking forward to be returning to Adelaide United and working with Adrian (Stenta) and the girls.
“This is my hometown club and where I’ve enjoyed playing some of my best football, so I’m really excited to be returning.
“The team has made a solid start to the season and I’m confident I can really contribute and make a positive impact.”
Adelaide United Liberty A-League Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “We’re extremely happy to have Dylan back at the Club. “She is a brilliant player and her addition certainly bolsters our squad.
“Dylan brings a lot of quality to our side because she is technically very sound, works hard on and off the field to improve her game, and has immense leadership qualities.
“The experiences she has gained playing abroad and being with the Matildas this past year has undoubtedly helped only further her development.”
