Westfield Women’s under-17 coach Ante Juric has named a 24-player squad to take part in a crucial training camp this week as the team embark on a huge year ahead.

It starts next month in Melaka, Malaysia with qualifiers for next year’s AFC Under-16 Championships.

If the squad can qualify for that tournament, they will then aim to make at least the final which doubles as qualification for the FIFA Women’s under-17 World Cup in Jordan in 2016.

Australia has failed to qualify for the last four editions of the FIFA under-17 World Cup.

This current squad possesses some exceptional talent and comes from all over the country, including four each from Victoria, NSW, South Australia and NSW Country.

Westfield Women’s under-17 squad : Eliza Ammendolia (NSW Country), Lexi Anastassiou (VIC), Morgan Aquino (WA), Melina Ayres (VIC), Danielle Bishop (NSW), Savannah Boller (QLD), Ashlee Brodigan (Northern NSW), Ellie Carpenter (NSW), Joey Cartwright (NSW Country), Alexandra Chidiac (SA), Chelsie Dawber (SA), Kobie Ferguson (Northern NSW), Clare Hunt (NSW Country), Princess Ibini (NSW), Alexia Karrys-Stahl (ACT), Grace Maher (ACT), Jada Mathyssen-Whyman (NSW Country), Aimee Medwin (TAS), Nora Peat (SA), Panagiota Petratos (NSW), Micaela Quinn (SA), Adriana Taranto (VIC), Melissa Taranto (VIC), Arina Tokunaga (QLD)
