Wagga golden girl Jada Whyman has re-signed with the Western Sydney Wanderers.
Whyman, 17, agreed to the one-year deal with the W-League club after enjoying a stellar 2016/2017 campaign as the Wanderers’ starting goalkeeper.
The fresh deal follows Whyman’s inclusion in the Matildas senior training squad earlier this year.
The talented keeper said she was thrilled to be back with Western Sydney for her third season in the professional ranks.
“It’s just a great club to be at,” she said.
“The coaching staff and players are fantastic and there’s a really good vibe around the club.”
Whyman said her goals for the season extended well beyond her immediate battles on the pitch.
“This season is about helping develop women’s football and to be the best club we can be in the women’s competition,” she said.
The young gun added that she was hoping to build on the momentum of yesterday’s announcement that the FFA and the players' union had agreed on a "landmark" collective bargaining agreement, a deal which is expected to more than double the average salary of W-League players to $15,500.
The Wanderers will begin the new season against Newcastle at Newcastle International Sports Centre on October 29.
