First to 100 - Clare Polkinghorne

Although Polias leads the all-time appearance record, she was actually the third player to reach the century mark, with Polkinghorne the first to achieve the landmark against Western Sydney Wanderers on the 7th of January, 2017.

Just one week later, Melbourne City's Marianna Tabain (15/1/17) notched up her century of appearances, before Polias (21/1/17) followed suit. Canberra United's Ellie Brush (28/1/17) then became the fourth player in four weeks to reach the milestone in the 2016/17 season.

Youngest to 100 - Steph Catley

Melbourne City skipper Steph Catley became the youngest player to reach 100 appearances on New Year's Day, 2018 against Western Sydney Wanderers at ANZ Stadium. At just 23 years, 11 months & 6 days, Catley beat the record previously held by Marianna Tabain by 113 days.

When Melbourne Victory's Teigen Allen reached her century in December last month, she became the third youngest player to reach 100 at the age of 24 years, 10 months & 14 days. 

Oldest to 100 - Lisa De Vanna

Conversely, in Round 8 of this season, Sydney FC's Lisa De Vanna came off the bench against Perth Glory to become the oldest player in W-League history to reach the milestone at 34 years, 1 month & 5 days. The Matildas legend has played for seven different W-League clubs and, like Catley, has featured in every season of the W-League. 

Soon to join...

Barring any injuries or surprise selections from Perth coach Bobby Despotovski, Kim Carroll (98) should reach the landmark this season, while Kyah Simon's recent injury will mean she will remain stuck on 95 and have to wait until next season to reach triple figures.

Current Jet Hannah Brewer and Victory forward Emily Gielnik are both currently on 93 appearances, and should also join the 100-club next season, while Matildas stars Caitlin Foord (91), Alanna Kennedy (90) & Sam Kerr (90) are also on target to reach the milestone next season.
