Australian U23 Women’s National Team head coach Melissa Andreatta has named 22 players to a training camp hosted in Brisbane next week and six Sydney FC players feature.
Congratulations to Kirsty Fenton, Mackenzie Hawkesby, Sarah Hunter, Princess Ibini, Charlotte McLean and Charlie Rule who have been named in the 22 player squad.
Taking place from 8 – 21 May, the assembly will be the first for the team in 2023 and will be held at the CommBank Matildas’ FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ Team Base Camp, Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre.
Andreatta expressed her anticipation of the domestic-based U23 squad coming together.
“Watching their strong performances over the 2022/23 A-League Women’s season fills me with excitement to bring this group together for another training camp,” Andreatta said.
“The U23 program was introduced to provide the education and support to these players to assist them in making the step to senior international football. A lot has changed since we last met and I have been impressed with how they have grown over the past 12 months and gained invaluable match minutes in their club environments.”
All 22 members of the squad for the training camp played in the recent A-League Women’s season with nine different clubs represented from across Australia.
