Lions FC welcome Cassandra Zaffina for the 2019 NPLW season.
Cassie has joined Lions on the back of being a member of the current W-League season where she was a part of the Canberra United Football Club squad. In 2018 she played for Gold Coast United and before that she played for Victorian powerhouse South Melbourne FC.
Like many keepers she started her football life as a striker but a medical condition meant a move to keeper was necessary in order to keep playing the game she loves.
Cassie is excited to be a part of Lions and is expecting a big season for both her and the club. She says, “My goal is to have a big influence on the team and do everything I can (on and off the field) to help our team win the league this year and make the finals. My personal goal is to improve my level of performance and be part of the W League again next season.”
