Canberra United fans will be hoping all-time W-League goal scorer Michelle Heyman can take them to the finals again next season, after re-signing with the club for 2021/22.
After making her return to United last season, taking her to her 100th game in green, she added to her tally of W-League goals and claimed the record title with 73 in her career.
Heyman, who has been playing for Gungahlin United FC in the NPLW, will be looking to add more to her tally during her 10th season in the capital.
Last season's Julie Dolan medallist said she was counting down the days until the season kicked off on November 13.
"I'm so excited to be back in green, I loved everything about last season and can't wait to be back," she said.
"I'm just so happy and grateful for another opportunity to represent Canberra, play in front of our amazing fans and push for another finals appearance."

United's head coach Vicki Linton welcomed the W-League veteran back into her squad last season, and Heyman was instrumental in helping the side reach their first finals campaign since 2016/17.
Linton said she was very pleased to have the 33-year-old back again in United's colours.
"I really enjoyed seeing her come back to the game last year and do so well," she said.
"I hope she enjoys another great season this year."
Heyman attributed her decision to return to the club to her United teammates and Linton.
"I always look forward to training and playing matches with the girls," she said.
"For myself, when I'm enjoying my football, have a smile on my face and around a great group, that's when I'm at my best.
"I'm also really happy to be playing under Vicki again. She's a great coach with a lot to offer us girls and I can't wait to see what we can achieve this season."
