A French international with more than 200 games in France's top leagues is set for the capital this season, alongside a Sydney winger due to make her W-League debut in green for Canberra United.
The first is midfielder Margot Robinne, who moved to Australia in 2017, before she signed a contract with Melbourne City last season and featured in five matches.
The 30-year-old brings with her a wealth of knowledge, having played 210 games in France's first and second division for Montigny le Bretonneux, FC Rouen and Toulouse FC, where she scored 138 goals.
"Last season, the team at Canberra United played some exciting football, they showed great courage and passion," Robinne said.
"Vicki's football vision and team management approach were at the centre of my decision to make the move to Canberra. I have no doubt it'll be a great environment for me to develop as a player and I'm eager to earn the team, club and supporters respect through my hard work and determination.
"I'm very excited to discover a new environment and play with experienced players while being able to tap into my own experience to take on a leadership role with the younger ones."

The next addition to United's line up is Holly Caspers for her debut W-League season. The winger has played in the NSW NPLW since 2012 and at Sydney Uni SFC since 2019.
"I've definitely heard great things about Canberra United, especially from the girls who also play at Sydney Uni," Caspers said.
"I've always enjoyed a team with great culture and a supportive environment while also competitively pushing the players, and I believe Canberra United is a club that will definitely offer this."
