Mary recently joined Canberra United players and staff to celebrate the end of the 2012/13 season.

Canberra United, which was one of the founding teams when the W-League began in 2008, has been wildly successful making the finals every season except this one.

Canberra United is unique in the W-League, being the only team which is not affiliated with an A-League club.

Canberra United also do considerable work in the community, with members of the team frequently visiting ACT schools and regularly conducting skills workshops for young people.

“It is great to see sportspeople using their position to help their community. I am very sad to see the football season come to an end as I very much enjoy watching Canberra United play.

“While the team did not achieve the success they were hoping for this season, the team is full of exciting young players and is led by a very talented coaching and management team. For this reason, I think the future is very promising,” Mary concluded.
