Richards: Reflection on Roar debut

Goalkeeper Keeley Richards made her Roar debut on Saturday against Adelaide United at Marden Sports Complex and looks forward to more game time in the two remaining rounds at home. 

Richards was pleased to get the three points away from home, and with their last two games at Perry Park, her eyes are set on all six points to finish the season strong. 

“It was an honour to play for the Roar, losing Jordy with three games left in the season was difficult, she’s been outstanding all season. It was an absolute privilege to get out there and play with the girls. Pretty tough conditions over in Adelaide but they managed to get the job done, which is always nice,” she said. 

“We want to finish the season as strong as possible, all want to put on a good show and hopefully get the job done!”

Richards enjoys playing in front of the Brisbane home crowd and is excited to get back out on the Perry Park pitch on Sunday. 

“The home support in Brisbane is unreal honestly, it’s nothing like I’ve ever played in front of before and I’m really excited to get out there and play with the guys.”

Last time the two teams met, Roar held a then second-placed Perth Glory side out to a 0-0 draw and Richards is determined to do one better and snatch all three points this weekend.

“The game last time was an absolute thriller. I think we probably should have got more out of the game last time so hopefully we can go out there and put our best foot forward and come away with the win.”
