As Perth Glory's Kim Carroll looks set to become the 19th player to reach 100 W-League appearances, so TWG have decided to go into full geek mode and take an in-depth look at some of the appearance milestones of the W-League.
Currently sitting on 98 appearances with three regular season fixtures remaining and her Perth Glory side sitting top of the ladder, it looks a sure thing that Kim Carroll will become the seventh player this season, and 19th overall, to reach a century of W-League appearances.
Katrina Gorry (Round 1), Leena Khamis (Round 6), Lydia Williams (Round 6), Shannon May (Round 7), Lisa De Vanna (Round 8) and Teigen Allen (Round 9) all also joined the '100 Club' this season, and out of the 18 players to reach the milestone, we still have 15 of those players currently playing in the W-League (assisted by the temporary return of Ash Sykes out of retirement).
Overall, leading the way is Sydney FC's inspirational captain Teresa Polias with 124 appearances, while Brisbane Roar & Matildas stalwart Clare Polkinghorne sits hot on her heels, just the solitary game behind on 123 appearances to date.
Quite incredibly, Polias has featured in 124 of Sydney FC's 135 matches, whilst Polkinghorne has appeared in 123 of Brisbane Roar's total 133 W-League fixtures.
