Sydney FC snap-up English striker ahead of new Liberty A-League campaign: Full Details

Sydney FC have made their first foray into the transfer market since the departure of Cortnee Vine, signing Perth Glory striker Millie Farrow on a one-year deal.

Farrow joins the reigning Liberty A-League champions off the back of a 2023-24 campaign which saw her bag seven goals and four assists from 22 matches with Perth Glory.

“Sydney FC are the benchmark each season and it’s an honour to be joining Australia’s most successful club

“I’m excited to play with the Championship winners and determined to help this club defend its title and reach an eighth consecutive Grand Final.

“They have some excellent players and a winning culture, and I hope I can score the goals to help them extend their incredible record. I’m looking forward to being a part of it.”

The deal to sign Farrow represents the Sky Blues’ first steps at filling the void left by Matildas winger Cortnee Vine, who recently sealed a move away from Sydney FC to NWSL side North Carolina Courage, ironically a club Farrow used to play for.

“Millie is a livewire forward who has all the attributes to score a lot of goals for Sydney FC,” said Sydney FC head coach Ante Juric.

“She is a winner and I know she will fit into our squad extremely well. I’m looking forward to seeing her imprint herself onto the league in a big way.”

The 28-year-old striker boasts plenty of experience on her resume when it comes to scoring goals and winning trophies, having won the double during her time at Women’s Super League giants Chelsea FC whilst also enjoying spells with Crystal Palace, Reading, Bristol City and Leicester City.

Farrow enjoyed a strong start to her one season with Perth but it was ultimately a campaign that ended in frustration for the Glory.

Alex Epakis’ side were top of the ladder in mid-December but a subsequent run of 12 matches without a win saw them fall away, eventually finishing 10th and therefore missing out on finals football altogether.
