We are excited to announce the re-signing of midfielder Leah Davidson until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Davidson made the move from Brisbane in 2020 and didn’t take long to make her mark in Melbourne.
The hard-working midfielder played all but four minutes of City’s 2020/21 season, and was one of our most important players, showing great instincts and positioning throughout the campaign.
With 12 clearances and 16 interceptions – along with nine key passes – Davidson consistently made her presence felt all over the pitch.
Having made a strong impression on the coaching staff during her first season in City blue, she claimed the Coaches Award at the 2020/21 Player of the Year Awards.
The 20-year-old has amassed 23 W-League appearances already and having signed on for the next two seasons, City fans will no doubt be excited to see Davidson continue to develop and help the team move back up the W-League ladder.
Head Coach Rado Vidosic said:
“We’re very happy to have Leah return to the Club and sign on for the next two seasons.
“She had a strong first season with us and I’m looking forward to watching her continue to improve and refine her game.
“Leah will again be an important player for us this season and no doubt will be motivated to take her game to the next level.”
Leah Davidson said:
“I don't really see myself playing anywhere else and I can’t wait to play in front of our fans again.
“I loved my time at Melbourne City last season, so it was quite an easy decision to return and I'm just so excited to be a part of such an amazing Club for another two years.
“We'll be striving for a better result than last season. I think that having that core group back means we will jell more on the pitch and I think that will reflect in our results.”
