Canberra United signs French midfielder Margot Robinne and young gun Holly Caspers
Canberra United is thrilled to announce that Margot Robinne and Holly Caspers have signed with the club for the upcoming season.
Margot Robinne is an experienced midfielder, who made her debut in the French National League at 15 years old. She played 210 games for Montigny le Bretonneux, FC Rouen and Toulouse FC, where she scored 138 goals.
In 2017, she moved to Australia to play in the Victorian NPLW, before signing a W-League contract with Melbourne City in 2020/21.
“Last season, the team at Canberra United played some exciting football, they showed great courage and passion,” she said.
“Vicki’s football vision and team management approach were at the centre of my decision to make the move to Canberra. I have no doubt it’ll be a great environment for me to develop as a player and I’m eager to earn the team, club and supporters respect through my hard work and determination.
“I’m very excited to discover a new environment and play with experienced players while being able to tap into my own experience to take on a leadership role with the younger ones.”
Holly Caspers joins Canberra United from Sydney Uni Football Club. The young winger has been playing in the NPLW1 since 2012.
“I’ve definitely heard great things about Canberra United, especially from the girls who also play at Sydney University,” Holly said.
“I’ve always enjoyed a team with great culture and a supportive environment whilst also competitively pushing the players, and I believe Canberra United is a club that will definitely offer this.”
