Exciting English forward added to Glory ALW squad

Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that exciting English forward Millie Farrow has joined the club’s Liberty A-League squad for the 2023/24 season.

The 27-year-old brings a wealth of top-flight experience from England where she represented Chelsea, Bristol City, Reading, Leicester City and Crystal Palace and has most recently played in the US for NWSL outfit, North Carolina Courage.

A former England Under-19 and Under-23 international, she was a part of the Chelsea squad which completed the FA Women’s Super League and Women’s FA Cup double in 2015 and collected an FA Women’s Championship winners’ medal with Leicester City in 2021.

Farrow is now looking forward to embarking upon a new football journey here in Western Australia.

“After talking with [Head Coach] Alex [Epakis] and hearing the ambitions and values of the club, I felt it was the perfect fit,” she said.

“It’s a very exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to meet everyone and get started.

“Personally, I’m determined to help the team in any way possible to reach their objectives.

“I’m hungry and ready to play some football in the sun!”

Epakis, meanwhile, believes that the new recruit has the potential to make a major impact on the ALW competition.

“Millie is another attack-minded player who has great finishing ability and speed to run beyond lines,” he said.

“She has an impressive history of being part of some great teams in Europe, with the England youth set-up and in the US.

“She is a mature and well-rounded individual who will add some strong football experience into the team.

“Her partnership with our other attacking players is something that excites me a lot because we want to be an attack-focused team with different scoring options.

“Millie has an impressive and inspiring story away from football and she will no doubt prove to be a great mentor and leader within the group.”

Further squad announcements will be made shortly.
