Condon aiming to continue impressive form
Arguably in career best form, Emily Condon is excited about playing at Coopers Stadium again for the first time since November 2018.
The Reds will be back at the venue taking on Western Sydney Wanderers Women, thanks to My Money House pre-purchasing all tickets for the match.
Fans will be able to claim the tickets free-of-charge through redemption, with the intention of smashing the previous record for a standalone Westfield W-League attendance.
“Obviously it’s very exciting,” Condon told reporters at a press conference at Coopers Stadium.
“We’re looking to push for a record crowd this game and to have it at Coopers Stadium is amazing.
“This is the home of Adelaide United so I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to play at Coopers Stadium once again for Adelaide United.”
The midfielder scored her third winner of the season with a beautiful, composed finish against Canberra United at Marden Sports Complex last weekend.
It was her third goal of the 2020/21 season – a personal best – to go along with two assists as well.
The 22-year-old, who has previously represented Australia at junior and senior level, is hopeful she can continue her mesmerising form to put herself in Westfield Matildas contention – particularly with the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ in Australia and New Zealand.
“Obviously in the past I’ve been fortunate to represent Australia, Young Matildas and even at the senior level to make my debut,” she explained.
“I’m just happy with how I’m going this season and whatever happens will happen. If I get the opportunity that would be amazing.
“It’s such an honour to represent your country so if the chance comes by I’ll take it.”
But Condon was quick to recognise her teammates and attribute them for her own strong performances this campaign.
“I think together as a team, I think it’s a lot of credit to my teammates who I’m playing with,” she stated.
“You’re only as good as those that you play next to so credit to them.
“I put in a lot of hard work over the offseason, so during the local WNPL season, working hard on and off the pitch.
“So I think it’s all just coming together for me now.”
One of the longest serving players for the Club with 67 Westfield W-League appearances, Condon was confident the wait for an elusive top four finish may soon be over.
“I think since I started,” she said when asked how long she has thought about playing finals football.
“This is my eighth playing season now so finals has always been in the back of my mind.
“And I think this season here we’ve got the perfect opportunity to finally make history for the Club and play in finals.”
