Western Sydney Wanderers today confirmed the re-signing of Young Matildas captain Sheridan Gallagher for the next two Liberty A-League seasons.

Gallagher featured in her first season of the domestic competition in 2021/22, making 10 appearances for the Red & Black.

The hardworking forward was recently named Australia’s captain at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica where she guided the side in the group stages.

Gallagher said she was eying a good season ahead for the Wanderers. “My first season in the A-Leagues was a real eye-opener to what potentially playing football full-time can be,” she explained.

“It was great to get a lot of minutes in my first season and I think working hard and being true to yourself is what I’ll take with me into this upcoming season. My goals are for the club to have a really great season and to help them make Finals would be amazing.

“To recently go to a World Cup and represent your country, to pull on that jersey is an amazing feeling and to play against world-class players is an experience I’ll never forget.”
