Ferns striker Hannah Wilkinson to leave A-League club Melbourne City

New Zealand international Hannah Wilkinson will leave women’s A-League club Melbourne City at the expiry of her contract.

Wilkinson leaves after three years with the club, and having become their all-time leading goalscorer.

She’s scored 30 goals in 51 appearances, and was co-winner of the club’s Player of the Year award after her first season in 2021-22.

Head coach Dario Vidosic said: “It’s important to recognise the influence that Hannah has had on our squad. She joined City as an internationally capped player with a wealth of experience and has been a positive role model and mentor for our younger players.

“Hannah’s performances have earned her great individual accolades, but more importantly, have played a big part in what we’ve been able to build towards as a squad, culminating in us winning the Premiers Plate.”

Hannah Wilkinson said: “I’d like to thank the fans, my amazing teammates, the coaching staff and everyone at the club for supporting me during my time at City.

“To win the Premiers Plate this past season, with this group of girls, was simply incredible and is something that I will never forget.

“I’ve loved my time at City and wish everyone all the best for next season.”
