South Melbourne FC is pleased to announce the signing of Candela Ferreyra Bas for the 2021 NPLW Victoria season.

Ferreyra Bas returns to football after a season playing footy, with the former Gold Medal Winner keen to make her mark at Lakeside.

Candela is a hard-working and versatile attacking player, who can dominate matches in the midfield, as well as create and score in the front third.

As a former captain of Southern United and one of the finest players in the NPLW Victoria competition, we are also looking forward to seeing her link up with our exciting squad.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, SMFC Senior Coach Samuel Young was excited with his latest acquisition. “Candy has been with us throughout pre-season and she has impressed everyone with her energy and work rate. She will add a different dimension to our midfield and we’re excited to have her in our squad.”

Also speaking to smfc.com.au, SMFC Women’s Football Director Gabrielle Giuliano also welcomed Candela to the club. “It is always great to bring talented footballers into the club and Candela is no exception. We have seen her play some outstanding football in the NPLW and are keen to see her emulate that form in a South shirt.
