Melbourne City FC can confirm that Matildas international Kyah Simon has mutually agreed to terminate her contract with the Club to pursue an opportunity abroad.
Simon joined City ahead of the 2017/18 Westfield W-League season, where she played an influential role in the team’s championship success with her instinctive ability in attack.
Following an interrupted 2018/19 season, Simon returned to her very best during the Club’s invincible 2019/20 campaign, helping her side secure the premiership and championship double.
Melbourne City FC Director of Football, Michael Petrillo said: “Kyah has been an instrumental member of our team and our club over the past three years.”
“Her professionalism, determination and desire to win are truly admirable and she has played a crucial role in our position as the best club in the W-League.
“On behalf of everyone at Melbourne City FC, I wish Kyah every success in the future.”
Reflecting on her time at the Club, Kyah Simon said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Melbourne City FC for the past three W-League seasons.”
“Michael [Petrillo], Pedj [Radinovic], Rado [Vidosic] and all the staff have always supported me and provided me with the most professional environment to excel.
“To the City fans, thank you for sharing this journey with me and for all your support throughout my time at City and the past 10 years that I’ve spent in the W-League. I’ve made many unforgettable memories, shared the field with so many talented teammates and won trophies – all moments I will cherish forever.”
A valued member of the Club over the past three seasons, Melbourne City FC would like to wish Kyah all the very best in the future.
