There are only a handful of games to go, but Sydney FC’s latest Westfield W-League recruit, Kelly Golebiowski hopes her skill and experience will be just the tonic needed to help the Sky Blue women make the finals and take the inaugural title.
There are only a handful of games to go, but Sydney FC-s latest Westfield W-League recruit, Kelly Golebiowski hopes her skill and experience will be just the tonic needed to help the Sky Blue women make the finals and take the inaugural title.
Brought into the squad as a replacement for Michelle Heyman who was forced to leave Sydney due to work commitments, the midfielder is well-known for her ability to weave through defenders and boasts an impeccable vision for the game.
Golebiowski was a leading player in the now defunct American WUSA Professional League with Washington Freedom, and originally came to prominence as a 14-year-old when she became the youngest player to pull on a Maltida-s jersey, making her debut against the United States in 1996.
Her inclusion in the Westfield W-League and particularly the Sky Blues- squad has received a warm reception.
“It-s good to be back with my friends on the field and getting back on Australian turf to play again,” she said after against the Perth Glory last Saturday.
Sydney lost that match 1-0 but Golebiowski was impressed with the standard of play on show in the young competition.
“I-m glad to be back and I-m looking forward to having fun; that-s the goal,” said Golebiowski.
Sydney will look to utilise its new recruit-s abilities over the coming weeks as the race to the finals reaches its climax.
The fifth-placed side-s next outing is this Saturday, December 20 against the Newcastle Jets at Campbelltown Stadium.
The televised match kicks-off at 4pm.
