Lions FC is pleased to welcome Sofie Persson for the 2019 NPLW season.
Sofie comes to Lions from Souths where she played in 2018. She is a dynamic forward who can play anywhere across the front three and as a 10. Sofie has played professionally in her native Sweden before coming to Australia where she has played in the WNPL with Sunshine Coast and UQFC before joining the Roar in 2015-16. Sofie suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in 2017 and is looking forward to a full preseason and season in 2019 where she hopes to recapture her goal scoring form of 2015 when she scored 26 goals.
Sofie says, “I am looking forward to my first full season back since surgery with a goal of a very strong season for my individual performance but most of all I want to win the league.”
