Roar Women in the NPL

You can catch some of your favourite Brisbane Roar A-League Women’s stars in action at a ground near you this winter with a number of players signing on with local NPL Queensland clubs in recent weeks.

Sharn Freier, Holly McQueen, Kijah Stephenson, Alicia Woods, Bonnie Davies, Mariel Hecher, Isabella Shuttleworth and Tamar Levin have all linked up with local clubs for the remainder of the 2023 NPL season.

Freier, who enjoyed a breakout ALW season which saw her earn a maiden Matildas call-up and scoop a number of hnours at the Roar Awards night including the Kate McShea Medal has returned to Brisbane City where she played in 2023.

The 22-year-old winger has scored two in two since signing on for the NPL Queensland Women’s league leaders.

McQueen and Stephenson have signed on at Olympic with the pair both playing their first minutes at Goodwin Park in a 1-1 draw against a Peninsula Power side which included Alicia Woods and Bonnie Davies at the weekend.

Davies and Woods have played two and three games respectively since returning to Power with the latter scoring in a 3-1 win over Sunshine Coast Wanderers at the beginning of the month.

Levin has started life at Eastern Suburbs with a bang, scoring three goals in three league games including one in a win against Brisbane City in a top of the table clash at Heath Park on Friday night.

Hecher and Shuttleworth have returned to defending Premiers Lions, playing two and three leagues games respectively so far with Hecher scoring in a 3-2 win over Gold Coast United in Round 12 action.

The eight members of the current Roar squad are just a few of the 23 players with A-League Women’s experience playing in the NPL Queensland this season.
