Brooks back with Reds for 2019/20

Adelaide United is thrilled to announce American defender, Amber Brooks, has re-signed with the Club for the Westfield W-League 2019/20 season.

Brooks will re-join the Club from National Women’s Soccer League outfit, Houston Dash, following an outstanding first season anchoring United’s defence last year.

In her first season in Australia, the 28-year-old was a resolute presence which culminated in her winning the Red’s Westfield W-League 2018/19 Player of the Year award.

The centre-back, who has amassed more than 120 appearances in the American top-flight and received one senior cap for her country, notched three assists while boasting a 75% tackle success rate with Adelaide.

The former Portland Thorns and Seattle Reign defender has also had two separate spells in Germany with Bayern Munich.

Head Coach, Ivan Karlović, was delighted Brooks was back for another season, hailing her experience and leadership qualities.

“From Amber’s first training session with us last season, it was clear that her experience and quality was going to benefit us majorly,” Karlović explained. 

“We are delighted that she will be returning to our squad for the new season and I’m certain she will again be a key component to our successes. 

“Amber’s ability to help improve those around her cannot be understated and to retain her outstanding leadership both on and off the field is fantastic.”
