Canberra United-s squad for Season Three of the Westfield W-League was further bolstered by the announcement of four more players that will line up in green for 2010/11.

Midfielders Grace Gill and Jennifer Bisset return for their third season with the club, as do the Sykes twins, Ashleigh and Nicole, with Coach Ray Junna adding to his initial thirteen player squad announced last week.

With several new faces arriving for season three competition for places is extremely fierce. The addition of these players further adds to what looks to be a strong Canberra United line-up.

Gill has been an integral part of the United team since its foundation and spent the winter season playing for local side Canberra FC in The Tradies Women-s Premier League, the elite Women-s competition in the ACT, whilst Bisset had a spell in the same league with ANU WFC (Australian National University).

The retention of the Sykes- twins adds significant pace to the United squad and further depth to an impressive looking roster.
