“I’m really happy to have re-signed with Victory for the upcoming season,” Jackson said.

“Jeff and the backroom staff have created an extremely professional environment which gives us the opportunity to prepare and perform at our best.

“Playing in front of and representing our loyal members and fans is also something the playing group takes a lot of pride in.

“As a group we want to keep driving one another to improve. We are putting in the hard work and we need to keep pushing ourselves to get better if we want to be contending come the end of the season.”

Head Coach Jeff Hopkins said Jackson’s leadership and experience is a great asset for the group.

“It’s fantastic to have Amy re-commit to the club this season,” Hopkins said. 

“Amy has a wealth of playing experience behind her, she understands the club and the culture we are building, and is invested in driving this team forward. 

“She is such an important member of our midfield group and she’s proven she can be extremely dangerous in front of goal.

“We are putting in the work to build on the foundations we’ve established over the past two seasons together. The squad is really focused on taking the next step and we are looking forward to the season starting on December 27.”
