Melbourne Victory have added the cherry on the icing of the tastiest cake the W-League has ever seen with the re-signings of three Premiership players, including Matilda Teigen Allen, Alexandra Gummer and Lia Privitelli.
Melbourne's high-profile re-signings compliment a massive raft of W-League signings over the past two days.
Western Sydney Wanderers locking down three NWSL champions and Canberra signing 32-year-old mother and reigning ACT NPLW Player of the Year, Jessie Rasschaert, to a landmark debut season.
But Victory coach Jeff Hopkins and his renewed trio of Premiership winners are focusing purely on their own turf, as they seek to go one better and rival the league's new powerhouses for a Grand Final showdown.
"It’s pleasing to be able to secure the services of Teigen, Alexandra and Lia for the upcoming W-League season,” Hopkins said.
“Teigen has really grown as a player over the past year and she worked hard to earn her spot back in the Matildas squad at the World Cup in France after missing a few years through injury.
“Alexandra and Lia have also been influential players for us over the years and helped contribute to our success last season.
“These girls are incredibly talented and provide added consistency to our squad as we prepare for our 2019/20 W-League campaign.”
