Norrie: It’s a Special Round

Brisbane Roar’s Liberty A-League Women’s Captain, Ayesha Norrie, says her team are hungry to get back to winning ways in this Sunday’s significant Double Header at Suncorp Stadium.

For the first time in club history, Roar is hosting an Indigenous Round, which will see both the Men and Women’s teams sporting a special-edition, Indigenous jersey.

Norrie, who was a part of the Roar’s 2017/18 Premiership winning season at Suncorp, returns to her spiritual home as captain in a blockbuster double header.

“This weekend’s pretty big for the club… we haven’t been back at Suncorp [for 4 years] and we’re wearing the indigenous jersey, so very honoured and it’s a special round,” she said.

“Definitely the crowds as well, especially with the double header and the men’s crowd so they’ll stay with us there as well,” Norrie added.

Currently sat sixth on the table, level on seven points with fourth place Melbourne Victory, the Women look to bounce-back from a 1-0 loss to Western United at Ballymore last Sunday.

“The girls really stick together; this is a close-knit group. You know, we’re a resilient bunch,” she shared.

“Alex [Smith] has come in and changed a few of our structures, it’s been really good, so hopefully [we] implement that this weekend and get the win”.

“[He] has an attacking mindset, so if we can implement that on the weekend and get a couple goals and start strong then we’ll be right,” she said.

Despite Adelaide’s winless start to the season, the Roar captain says her side won’t be pulling any punches.

“I think like many teams in this league you can’t underestimate them so just focus on what we control and how we play,” she said.

“We’re just looking forward to the weekend”.
