Goalkeeper Keeley Richards joins Brisbane Roar for 2023/24 Liberty A-League season  

Brisbane Roar is delighted to welcome goalkeeper Keeley Richards to the club ahead of the 2023/24 Liberty A-League season.  

Brisbane born and raised; Richards made her top-flight debut with Canberra United in Round 5 of the 2020/21 season which saw her go on to play two more campaigns in the capital.  

The 28-year-old has made 20 appearances in her time there, making 68 saves and will look to build on that in Brisbane.  

With her athletic ability and shot-stopping talent, Richards is set to be a valuable asset to the squad as she makes the trip north to join the Roar.  

“I’m very excited, being from Brisbane, I grew up here, the chance to play at home in front of friends and family will be great,” Richards said.  

“We want to go as far as possible. The Roar has always been that strong and competitive side and it will be nice to get them back up there where they belong,” she added.  

Head Coach Garrath McPherson looks forward to welcoming Richards to the Roar with her selfless nature and her skillset in goals.  

“Keeley brings multiple seasons of ALW experience to our GK unit. Anyone that has had the opportunity to stand side by side with her will tell you how selfless she is, always putting the team first. This is a unique trait and one that will make for a seamless transition into orange,” McPherson said.  

“One of our key areas for growth is consistency across a long campaign. This requires turning up every day to be the best we can be,” he added.  

“Keeley is a professional who has been in the competition for a number of years and to do so takes a particular mindset. This mindset will be an asset for us in achieving our goals.”
