Melbourne Victory signs Jessika Nash

Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce the signing of promising young defender Jessika Nash for the 2022/23 Liberty A-League season.

Fresh off the back of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Costa Rica, the 17-year-old joins the Club with 24 A-League Women’s appearances, having debuted in the league as a 15-year-old for Canberra United and featuring last season for Sydney FC.

The fullback has showed her potential as a future Matildas regular, making her senior international debut in 2021 against the United States and recently receiving the Collette McCallum Medal which celebrates the conduct and commitment of a female player representing Australia’s junior teams.

Melbourne Victory Head Coach, Jeff Hopkins said he was thrilled to add a talent like Nash to his squad for the upcoming season.

“We’re incredibly pleased to be able to have Jess as part of our roster for our second title defence in a row and we believe she will play an influential role for the coming season,” Hopkins said.

“We’ve followed her incredible trajectory from a young player into a senior international and we believe she will bring a cutting edge to help us achieve big things this season.”

Nash was also looking forward to joining Victory, saying she’s driven to bring more success to the Club in 2022/23.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me to join Melbourne Victory and work with a coach like Jeff to continue to develop my game and bring titles to the Club,” Nash said.

“Victory is always a formidable opponent to come up against and to now be on the team and working together to achieve the ultimate success is something that drives me to do my best every day.”

Nash is the Club’s first signing of the 2022/23 pre-season joining the already contracted list for the upcoming campaign which includes; Kayla Morrison, Melina Ayres, Amy Jackson, Paige Zois, Alana Murphy and Maja Markovski.
