Vine and Whyman commit to Sky Blues

Matildas’ stars Cortnee Vine and Jada Whyman will proudly wear the Sky Blue of Sydney FC in the Liberty A-League 2022-23 season.

The double Premiership winning duo have been central to the Sky Blue’s success over the past two seasons, with their form earning both Matildas call-ups in the past 12 months.

Winger Cortnee Vine has signed on despite attracting interest from clubs overseas and is excited to be remaining here in Sydney.

“I feel very at home at Sydney FC and the club and our squad are like family to me so I had no hesitation in re-signing,” she said.

“We feel we’ve been the best club over the past few years having consistently won trophies and qualified for Grand Finals and we’ve got another very good chance this season with the players in our side.

“Playing for the Matildas at the new Allianz Stadium gave me a real sense of how incredible it is to play there and I can’t wait to go back again this season.”

Goalkeeper Whyman, who is 22 years old, starts her third season in Sydney FC colours and is determined to complete the double after narrowly missing out in the last two Grand Finals.

“I’ve really enjoying my football since joining Sydney FC. We’ve had some great wins over the past couple of seasons, and this season we plan to work hard and hopefully have another good one,” she said.

“The season is longer and it’s going to be tough but it’s also exciting and I can’t wait to get going.”

Head Coach Ante Juric also highlighted his delight in retaining both players for this season.

He said: “Cortnee and Jada have been integral for us these past two seasons and without question are two of the best players in the competition.

“They have another season under their belts so I’ve no doubt will improve this year and it will make us stronger.

“Our squad is looking good and once we bring in three or four more players we’ll be even better.”

Vine and Whyman are back in Sky Blue for 2022/23

Vine and Whyman make up the 17th and 18th players in Sydney FC’s Women’s squad.

The players return to pre-season training in mid-October and start their campaign away to Adelaide on Saturday 20th November.
