South Melbourne FC would like to confirm that four-time championship winner Alex Cheal has re-joined the club for the 2020 season.

Cheal is a face that should be very familiar with the South Melbourne family, with the centre-back captaining the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Championship winning teams.

Her achievements as a South player also saw her recently inducted into the Hall of Fame in February 2020.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Senior Coach Sam Young was thrilled to welcome Alex back into the club and to the squad. “Alex Cheal needs no introduction to South Melbourne FC fans. An unbelievable competitor whose leadership, passion and drive epitomise the best qualities of South Melbourne.  We are really pleased to have her on board for the season”

We’re excited to see Alex back in our colours for the 2020 season.
