Ashleigh Sykes

Livewire Canberra United favourite, the 23-year-old forms part of the dynamic football duo that is the Sykes sisters (Nicole is her sibling).

From Dubbo, striker Ash could’ve been an athletics star such was her speed early in her career. But Canberra has benefitted from her switch to football.

She was part of the club’s very first W-League grand final and in their most recent was absolutely key; with two goals in the grand final win over Perth.

Sykes adds even more depth to Australia’s attacking riches.
