Promising WA teenagers added to ALW squad

Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that up-and-coming WA duo Mischa Anderson and Clara Hoarau have been added to the club’s A-Leagues Women’s squad for the 2023/24 season.

Anderson, a resolute 17-year-old central defender, was a standout performer for the NTC throughout the 2023 NPLW WA campaign, while dynamic 16-year-old midfielder Hoarau was similarly impressive for Murdoch University Melville FC.

“Mischa and Clara are both fantastic additions to our squad,” he said.

“They possess a real hunger and level of enthusiasm to their approach and are really looking forward to being a part of our professional environment this season.

“Both players have had strong seasons within the local NPLW this year and in each performance showed a level of maturity beyond their experience.

“This has been further witnessed over the past few weeks during training.

“Clara is a very versatile midfielder who has a great skill set with and without the ball, while Mischa is player who enjoys the art of defending and distributing possession from the back.

“Across the month of training, both players have already shown a great level of quality involvement and they will continue to progress throughout the season and into the future.”

Glory’s first game of the new Liberty A-League season will take place on Saturday 14 October when Western United will provide the opposition at Macedonia Park.

Kick-off is at 7pm and tickets are available HERE.
