The Central Coast Mariners are excited to announce the signing of young goalkeeper Chloe Carmichael on a scholarship contract ahead of the upcoming A-League Women’s season.
The 20-year-old has most recently played her football for NSW League One Women’s side Nepean FC, having come through the Football NSW Institute as a junior.
Carmichael has also already had a taste of international football, having travelled away and played with the Junior Matildas during the 2019 AFC U-16 Women’s Championship Qualifiers in Laos.
An electric goalkeeper with sharp reflexes and quality ball distribution skills, the youngster now continues her footballing journey with her first A-League Women’s contract.
Carmichael is ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to be a part of the A-League Women’s squad, eager for the season ahead.
“I am so excited to have received a professional contract from the Mariners and I can’t wait to be a part of the squad for the upcoming season. I am extremely grateful for the club for the opportunity, and I cannot wait to give it my all,” she said.
“To be around the girls in a professional environment will be amazing. With the Mariners coming back into the competition this season, there is such a positive buzz around football on the Central Coast at the moment. To be a part of the Mariners A-League Women’s journey is exciting.”
Mariners Head Coach Emily Husband is pleased to be able to bring Carmichael into the squad ahead of this season, excited to watch her continue to grow as a goalkeeper.
“Chloe is another one of the players who have come through the Football NSW Institute and has been playing first grade for a while now,” Husband said.
“For her to be able to continue her journey of footballing development with the Mariners this season is great for us, and also great for Chloe.”
