Adelaide United secure Mary and Ciara Fowler
Adelaide: Adelaide United have completed a double swoop for Matildas talent Mary Fowler and elder sister Ciara ahead of the W-League 2019/2020 season, the club announced on Friday.
Mary, 16, has already received four caps with the Australian national team following her debut off the bench against Brazil in the 2018 Tournament of Nations, and was part of Ante Milicic's 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup squad.
A regular part of the Future Matildas and Young Matildas squad on her way to senior football, the forward scored 17 goals in 10 appearances with the latter and was named in the training camp for the AFC U-19 Championship in Thailand next month.

Ciara, an 18-year-old midfielder, is also in the squad. Both sisters played for Bankstown City in the NPL NSW Women's competition last season.
“To secure the signings of these two very promising, young footballers is fantastic for our team and Adelaide United as aclub, and we’re very excited to be welcoming them to the Reds," said head coach Ivan Karlovic.
“Both Mary and Ciara have experience with the national set-ups and this will certainly help us as we head into the new season.
“Their quality will help to lift our standard and I’m sure they’ll be a perfect fit to our dressing room chemistry.
“It will be a new experience for Mary and Ciara playing in a different state, but I’m confident this adventure will help them continue to develop both on and off the park."
