Canberra United have announced the signing of striker Jasmyne Spencer and midfielder Celeste Boureille for the 2016/17 W-League season.

26 year old Spencer returns for a third W-League season after representing Sydney FC for the past two years.

During her time Spencer has lead the Sydney FC goalscoring with 12 goals in 27 appearances and was named the Player of the Year for the 2014/15 season.

“I'm excited to bring my talents to an already talented team. I can't wait to take on Season 9 and hopefully help Canberra win another championship,” said Spencer.

The dynamic striker assisted Sydney to the Season 8 Grand Final and will join Canberra after a strong first season for Orlando Pride in the NWSL and head coach Rae Dower believes she will be a good fit for Canberra.

“Jasmyne of course has been entertaining the fans of the W-League for the last couple of seasons north of the border and is an outstanding addition to our team for this season," said Dower.

"She has a winning mentality and is a proven goalscorer. We know first-hand of her attacking prowess and I look forward to seeing her run defenders ragged around the country in Season 9.”

Meanwhile midfielder Boureille joins Canberra from the Portland Thorns, the same club as returning Canberra recruit Hayley Raso.

“Celeste is a very promising young midfielder who is strong, good in the air, equally at home with both feet and has very good game awareness,” Dower commented. “I'm looking forward to seeing her impact on our team and the league.

“There'll be some familiarity between Celeste and Hayley Raso, while Michelle Heyman has also played with Jasmyne before at Western New York Flash which is important for team chemistry.

Canberra United starts their W-League season on Saturday 12th November when they take on Champions Melbourne City at GIO Stadium in Canberra.
