Defender Kim Carroll has signed with Season 8 Premiers Perth Glory for the 2015/16 W-League season.

Carroll, who is a two time premiership and championship winner, last week departed Brisbane Roar after seven seasons with the club.

The 27 year old Asian Cup winner and silver medallist is a "like for like" signing for the Glory after Alanna Kennedy decided against returning to the Glory in Season 8.

“She strengthens our defence and slots in perfectly,” head coach Bobby Despotovski.

“Carroll organises the whole defence with her experience.”

“She drops into the central role in the heart of defence. She’s a leader on the park.”

For Carroll, as it was for Kennedy, Perth represents an opportunity for increased game time and chance to put her hand up for return to the Matildas set up after missing out on selection for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

“I couldn’t resist the opportunity for a fresh start and a new challenge,” she said.

“I’ve heard good things about Bobby (Despotovski) as a player, coach and person. I’m hoping he can challenge me as a player to push me to another level.”

“I want to win the (Westfield W-League) Premiership and Championship as a Perth Glory player.”

Kim Carroll will join the Glory squad in September for pre-season training.
