Experienced duo sign W-League deals


Melbourne Victory has signed experienced Westfield W-League duo Ella Mastrantonio and Alexandra Gummer on one-year deals.

Mastrantonio, a Championship-winning player with Victory in 2014, returns to Melbourne for her third stint at the Club.

Gummer, a versatile player, lines up for Jeff Hopkins once again after featuring for Victory in the last two seasons.

“I wanted to make sure there was plenty of W-League experience in the squad and both Ella and Alex certainly bring that,” Head Coach Jeff Hopkins said.

“They are both familiar with what we’re about and they can help the younger players find their feet at this level.

“Alex gives us great versatility, players who can play in a couple of positions are really important for us.

“Ella is a reliable midfielder who will always do a job when called upon.”
