Brisbane Roar is pleased to welcome back striker Larissa Crummer for the upcoming 2022/23 Liberty A-League Season.
Crummer will be joining the Roar for her fifth season having played with the club between 2013 and 2015 before spending time with Melbourne City, Seattle Reign and Newcastle Jets before returning to the club at the back end of the 2020/2021 season.
In the 2021/2022 Liberty A-League season with the Roar, Crummer won the club’s golden boot with eight goals.
That included a hat-trick in a 5-1 win against Newcastle. The 26 year old striker is now looking forward to building on from the momentum the squad gathered at the end of last season.
“Last year we started scoring goals and playing really well towards the end of the season,” Crummer said.
“We’ve got a strong team with girls who have been playing regularly with each other and I think it’s going to help us leading into this Roar season.”
Crummer will join the Roar upon the conclusion of the NPL Queensland season where she has played four games, scoring 3 goals for Capalaba Bulldogs FC.
At the Bulldogs, Crummer was reunited with Roar teammate Hollie Palmer, and is looking forward to playing alongside Palmer again in Orange.
“We’ve been linking up really well at Capalaba and it’s going to be an exciting season ahead with her.”
Crummer has also been a part of the Future Matildas program in the offseason with Brisbane Roar’s Liberty A-League Head Coach Garrath McPherson and has been taking full advantage of the opportunities afforded to her.
“I’ve been working hard on improving the things in my game I need to and want to get better on, so I can become an all-around striker. I’m excited.”
Head Coach McPherson said Crummer was not only a role model within the squad but brings a lot of firepower.
“Larissa provides our team with a number of weapons in both attack and defence. Bringing her back to continue her form from last season is wonderful for the club and our fans,” McPherson said.
“At the start of last season we set about rebuilding the squad with Queenslanders.
“Larissa is one of those role models for the next generation of female footballers who have played either at the same local club or same school.”
