PFA CEO John Didulica said the elevation of Gill, who was instrumental in the first ever W-League Collective Bargaining Agreement, further empowers her to speak domestically and internationally to those unique issues impacting upon women in football.

“As football evolves we need to have an executive team and a leadership team that reflects the future of the game and voices that can speak authentically on behalf of every single PFA member,” said Didulica.

Kellond-Knight has been elevated to the PFA Executive, joining Matildas teammate Lydia Williams and former Brisbane Roar now Perth Glory defender Kim Carroll. 

Kellond-Knight said she was honoured to join the PFA Executive.

“I feel the experience I have gained from playing for many years at international level as well as within various domestic leagues throughout the World, can be very valuable and it’s an opportunity to give back to the game that has provided me with so many experiences," said Kellond-Knight.
