Heyman arrives from Canberra United where she established herself as a club legend while also bagging 20 goals in 60 caps for Australia.

The 30-year-old is the all-time leading goal-scorer in the Westfield W-League with more than 50 goals in eight seasons for Canberra.

The two-time W-League Golden Boot winner enjoyed a breakout season with Central Coast Mariners in 2009 before moving to Canberra and establishing herself as one of the competition’s most prolific finishers.

She has also enjoyed stints abroad in Denmark with Brøndby IF and American outfit Western New York Flash in the National Women’s Soccer League for the 2015 campaign.

Heyman said she was thrilled to be joining Adelaide and excited by the team’s ambitious objectives after speaking with Head Coach, Ivan Karlović.

“I’m super excited to sign with Adelaide and ready to score some goals for the team,” Heyman said.

“I believe that we can definitely make finals and with the experience that Adelaide have already with the likes of Emma Checker and now with myself adding more experience, I think we can definitely be a successful team.

“Especially with Ivan, because he’s been an incredible coach to talk to so far with his vision and what he wants for this year and I see a first finals appearance being very achievable.

“I think a successful team is going to be a happy team and I can’t wait to get started.”

Karlović, lauded the addition of Heyman and said she will bring a wealth of knowledge and quality to the squad.

“Michelle is an excellent player and has demonstrated this over a number of years, not only in the W-League but also with the Matildas,” he said.

“We’re excited to have someone of her calibre part of our team for the upcoming season and I know her leadership will be vital for us throughout the year.

“This is just one piece of our puzzle for the new campaign and we are working hard in adding more quality and experience to the team in the coming weeks.”

Further west and moving out of Adelaide, Perth Glory unveiled Eliza Campbell as their new keeper for next season.

The 23-year-old, who made her Matildas debut against China last year, is regarded as one of the best shot-stoppers in the country and is relishing the prospect of helping Bobby Despotovski's side in their quest for a maiden W-League title.

"The aim is to definitely make finals and then progress from there," she said, "and I'm confident that we're going to have a good enough team at Perth to do that.

"I thought coming to Perth would a good change for me. Perth has always seemed like a good place to go to and a good club to play for, so I thought I'd give it a go."
