Laura Brock, formerly known as Laura Alleway, has announced her move to French Division 1 side EA Guingamp.
The Matilda is the fourth Australian to move to the French Division 1 this year following Mary Fowler's move to Montpellier, Emma Checker's move to FC Fleury, and Ellie Carpenter's move to Olympique Lyonnais.
Brock had spent eleven seasons in the W-League, making her debut in the 2009-10 season with the Melbourne Victory. She then played five seasons with the Brisbane Roar, two seasons with Melbourne City before returning to the Victory.
On top of her 115 W-League appearances, Brock also spent time abroad with former English FAWSL side Notts County and American side the Orlando Pride.
Brock joins EA Guingamp on a one year deal. The club finished last season in the sixth position in the league.
