Following on from her well publicised departure from reigning W-League champions Canberra United, Matildas' defender Ellyse Perry has confirmed her move to Sydney FC for the 2012/13 W-League season.

"Two roads diverged in a wood"
We have all faced that cross road. That moment when you know a decision, or non-decision, could forever change the trajectory of your life. For Matildas striker Sam Kerr, her cross road was in the form of a rupture in a small, but crucial, ligament in her knee in September 2011.
Every team needs a great personality and in the Matildas there are plenty of those. One such player is defender Servet Uzunlar. The dichotomy of Uzunlar's personality is fascinating. Fun, playful, self-deprecating off the pitch yet intense, focused and self-critical on it.

While the Sydney FC team is one chock full of stars, this year it has been their lesser well known players that have steered the Sky Blues into the finals. They include the likes of Renee Rollason, Teresa Polias and backline general Danielle Brogan.
Now with captain Heather Garriock out for the rest of the season, defender Brogan will stand in to lead Sydney for the rest of the W-League campaign.
