Hunter to put friendships aside on Saturday

Sydney FC midfielder Sarah Hunter is enjoying life with the club after making her debut in last week’s 3-1 win over the Newcastle Jets at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium last weekend.

Ante Juric’s side had a convincing 3-1 win and Hunter is happy that the team was able to start their season with a win.

“It was a great day, we had lots of fun out there on the field as a team. For me, it was great to make my debut but more importantly, it was all about the result.”

“Everyone has made me feel welcome here, we have a young squad here and Nat Tobin has especially made me feel a part of the team.”

“I think we have a really good young side and I believe our backline is underrated. I thought they were all outstanding on the weekend. We have a great side this season.”

This weekend the Women’s side comes up against Hunter’s former team the Western Sydney Wanderers and the young midfielder has been engaging in some friendly banter with some of her former teammates.

“One of my close friends Bryleeh Henry at the Wanderers still goes to the same gym as me and we’ve had some friendly jabs at each other.”

“Even our trainers at the gym have been divided and are picking sides ahead of the game this weekend.”

Hunter and the team are under no illusions about treating this match as another game and is looking to stay grounded ahead of the derby.

“One of the things that Ante has instilled into us is that we treat every game as important as each other, it’s another game for us and we’ll give it our all on Saturday.”
