Sydney FC Welcomes Lucy, Aideen And Margaux

Liberty A-League Champions and Premiers Sydney FC have strengthened with the signings of three new players.

Tenacious 24-year-old midfielder Lucy Johnson, 21-year-old dynamic forward Aideen Keane and versatile 21-year-old defender Margaux Chauvet arrive as the Sky Blues prepare to break the Liberty A-League membership record and defend their titles.

Johnson joins from Newcastle Jets, Keane from Perth Glory and Chauvet returns following an injury replacement spell in Sky Blue last season.

Following the success of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Sydney FC is targeting a record 1,000 Memberships in the 2023-24 season and Head Coach Ante Juric is confident each player will add new vigour to the squad.

“All three girls will bring a fresh energy and desire to the squad, and they have good experience in this competition,” he said.

“Lucy had a good last season and has proven to be a gifted midfielder.  Aideen has enormous potential and is an exciting player. Margaux is a quality defender who can do several roles within a team.  I am excited to have all three players join us this season.

“It’s important we refresh our squad for the new season and that our players continue to have competition for their starting places. These players, along with a few others, will do that.”

Johnson described her joy at signing for the Sky Blues.

“I’m delighted to be signing with this huge club that is Sydney FC. I’m determined to continue the tradition of bringing success to this club. I can’t wait to get to work with Ante and the girls,” she said.

“It’s a big club, with high expectations but I am looking forward to that challenge.”

Keane believes she can boost her young career and win trophies with the club.

“I’m so excited to be joining the club, I want to learn from the environment and create successful memories.

“Sydney FC is a proven platform for players to progress and gain either international recognition or be rewarded with careers overseas and that is something I want to achieve.”

Chauvet is happy to be returning in a full-time capacity.

“I got a good understanding for the culture within this club last season and I’m very grateful to be experiencing it again,” she said.
