Western United has secured the services of another talented young Australia, adding Kiara De Domizio to its Liberty A-League Women roster.
The 22-year-old has been training with United during pre-season and featured in both of the team’s friendly matches against the FV State Team and Melbourne Victory.
An athletic attacker, De Domizio is blessed with height and an explosive turn of pace to take her past defenders in the final third.
Capable of playing anywhere across the final third, De Domizio has an eye for goal or a creative pass to set up her teammates and contribute.
She has demonstrated that ability since making her NPLW New South Wales debut with Sydney Olympic at the age of 17 and continuing to impress in her hometown.
De Domizio said joining the Club after the successful debut campaign last season would give her great motivation to make an impact in 2023/24.
“I am very excited and beyond grateful to have signed my first professional contract. It has been a massive dream and ambition of mine and it still feels so surreal that I’ve been able to hit this milestone,” she said.
“I’m super grateful to have been given this opportunity by Mark to join the squad and after seeing what the girls and the Club achieved last season, it motivates me to build on that success. I can’t wait to keep growing and developing my football career here at Western United.”
Western United Head Coach Mark Torcaso said he had been tracking De Domizio’s development in Sydney in anticipation of bringing her qualities into the team.
“I’ve gone up to Sydney on a couple of occasions to watch Kiara play and keep track of her progress, and now is the perfect time to bring her strengths into our group,” he said.
“Kiara has shown me that she has a tremendous desire to succeed, a willingness to learn and fantastic qualities on the pitch, not least her explosive pace and athleticism that will be a big asset for us in the final third.
“Our aim is to continue to give opportunities to talented young players and we are delighted to add Kiara to a squad already rich with such players.”
De Domizio will continue to work on the training track as United build towards the Liberty A-League opener against Perth Glory on Saturday.
