Signings news: Boureille back with Roar for a third season

Brisbane Roar have re-signed American midfielder Celeste Boureille ahead of the Westfield W-League 2019/20 Season.

Boureille, 25, has played the last two seasons with Roar, helping the club to back-to-back top-two finishes.

Winning the club’s Player of the Year in her first season in 2017/18, Boureille is the 18th signing made by new coach Jake Goodship.

“I’m really happy to be back with the girls,” Boureille said.

“There’s a few new faces, but plenty of familiar ones too so it’ll be nice to have the whole group together again.

“I think it’s going to be an exciting year. With the bye in the first round, it’ll mean that we get more time to get to know each other and train together as a complete squad.”
