Jessica Young joins SMFC for 2022 NPLW season

South Melbourne FC would like to announce the signing of attacking player Jessica Young for the 2022 NPLW Victoria season.

Young joins the club from a breakout year with FV Emerging, which also gave her an opportunity as a train-on for A-League Women club Melbourne Victory.

She joins the club as a technical and hardworking attacking option, who can play on either wing or through the middle. She also has a natural eye for goal and proved that in the shortened season, including scoring on Lakeside Stadium against South in our only loss of the league season.

Speaking to SMFC Media, Samuel Young welcomed Jess to the club. “‘I’m really excited to welcome Jess to the club. We’ve been following her progress all year in the Emerging program, so we are pleased to have her on board in 2022 and beyond. Jess can play anywhere in the final third which gives us many options going forward”

We look forward to seeing Jess in South colours throughout 2022.
