Brisbane Roar have continued to bolster their 2021-22 squad with the addition of Cannon Clough.
Brisbane Roar have announced the signing of National Premier League Queensland player Cannon Clough.
Clough has been playing in the NPLW with Lions FC for three season now. She has made 65 appearances so far, scoring seven goals. The defender was nominated for the 2019 NPLW Queensland Player of the Year award.
A speedy and skillful full back, she has most recently won the Kappa Women's Super Cup with Lions FC in their continued quest for the treble. The NPLW is currently first in the Ladder, having already claimed the Premiership and qualified for the Finals Series.
The defender had also scored the winning goal of her Queensland team's triumph over New South Wales in the 2020 Watson-O'Connor Cup.

Speaking of signing her first professional A-League Women's deal in the mainly locally recruited squad, Clough said:

Her new head coach Garrath McPherson stated his excitement at the signing of the defender:
