JG15 – the other sparkling Aussie in the Barclays FAWSL

So, you’re interested in following the Barclays FAWSL now that Sam Kerr has joined Chelsea? Plus the rumour mill is hinting that Caitlin Foord and Hayley Raso could soon be signing with English clubs, too. (update overnight 16/1/20: Raso has been announced by Optus Sport as signing with Everton, but as yet no announcements from the club)

But did you know that Young Matilda Jacynta Galabadaarachchi has been working hard and getting minutes for West Ham?

She’s eighteen, a nutmeg queen and has already made more than 13 appearances for the Hammers across the FAWSL and Conti Cup, including 7 starts and a Hammer of the Match performance.

The Irons’ fans have quickly warmed to the youngster and she has proven to be popular around the club.


Despite not getting too much attention from Matildas media, she certainly has been sparkling.

With 2 assists to her name, she is yet to score a goal but you can’t help but feel it’s not too far away, which makes for an interesting contest with the newly arrived Matildas captain.

The question is now, who will score first – Kerr, or Gala? 🤔
