Katrina Gorry and Kajsa Lind return to Sweden  

Katrina Gorry and Kajsa Lind have completed their loan spell with Brisbane Roar and will be returning to their parent club Vitssjo GIK in Sweden.  

Gorry returned the Roar ahead of the 2022/2023 Liberty A-League season in her 11th season with the club, meanwhile Kajsa Lind joined the club in mid-November last year. 

Gorry is pleased to be back in Sweden and into the routine of training with her Vitssjo GIK teammates ahead of the season, all while adjusting to the colder climate again.  

“It’s been really nice. We kind of picked up where we left off. I had a session with them on Friday and then travelled to a practice game on the Saturday,” Gorry said.  

“It’s been nice to be back around the team, very different, it’s quite cold here, very different weather here but it’s been nice to be reunited again,” she added.  

Kajsa Lind joined the Brisbane Roar late last year after hearing about the club through Gorry and the pair have enjoyed playing alongside each other for the 2022/2023 Liberty A-League season.  

“It was really nice to have Kai (Kajsa) over there for the season, she hadn’t been getting much playing time here and I could see how good of a centre back she was and how she would be an important part of our Brisbane team,” Gorry said.  

“I was really excited by her coming, and I think she really enjoyed her time in Brisbane.” 

Gorry is excited for the younger Roar players to get some time as a result of several players leaving, for what she believes will contribute to an exciting time ahead for the club.  

“It’s going to be exciting for the younger players to get some game time and see what they can do in the league and I think the more games they get, the more confident they’ll be and the better Brisbane Roar will be in the end so I think it’s going to be an exciting couple of weeks for them.” 

Lind feels like her time at Brisbane Roar developed herself as a player after not ever playing outside of Sweden.

“I had a really great time. I didn’t really know what to expect when I signed because this was the first time for me playing outside Sweden. It was so much fun,” Lind said.

“I got to play a lot of games, I played all the games I think. That was also a big reason why I signed because I wanted to play a lot of games so that was great for me,” she added.

Lind hopes the Roar can end their season on a high note with two wins.

“I hope they win their two remaining games, it’s always nice to end a season with a win. I really hope they can do it.”
