Melbourne Victory re-signs Ava Briedis

Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce the re-signing of young midfielder Ava Briedis for the 2023/24 Liberty A-League season.

The 17-year-old heads into her second season with Melbourne Victory’s A-League Women’s side after making 11 appearances in her first senior campaign.

A graduate of the Club’s Elite Girls Program, Briedis made her first start for the senior team in the season opener against Western United and started in the side’s semi-final against Sydney FC in April.

Melbourne Victory Director of Football, John Didulica said he was excited to continue to see Briedis’ development at Victory.

“We’re thrilled to have Ava continue her journey at Melbourne Victory,” Didulica said.

“She stepped up to the senior squad last season and made great progress as she continues to grow as a footballer.

“Seeing players graduate from our Elite Girls Program to our A-League Women’s squad is incredibly rewarding for everyone at Melbourne Victory and we look forward to Ava and many more female players coming through our program and into the senior women’s side.”

Briedis was also excited to be back for another season.

“Last season was an incredible experience for me and I’m looking forward to continuing to develop at Melbourne Victory,” Briedis said.

“Working with Jeff and the team every day was a big learning experience for me and to play a role in a side that has achieved so much over the past couple of seasons was amazing.”

Briedis joins Kayla Morrison, Lia Pivitelli and Alana Murphy as the Club’s latest re-signings as well as the new signings of Rachel Lowe, Emma Checker and Jamilla Rankin ahead of the 2023/24 Liberty A-League season.
