Adelaide City have reinforced their midfield for their second-straight WNPL championship defence with the signing of Nora Peat.
Peat first played for City in 2012, when she represented the club in their Under 15 team before moving into the state setup for a number of years.
In 2017, Peat returned to Adelaide City before signing for Adelaide United in the W-League, making 5 appearances at the professional level.
Following the completion of the 2017-18 W-League season, Peat moved to New South Wales and signed for Sydney University for the 2018 season before making the decision to again rejoin the club.
Peat revealed to fans that she is a versatile player, with the ability to play anywhere across the middle of the park.
She is set to be a huge asset to Andrew Calderbank’s midfield where he is given the task of being the successor to Mick Hatzipanagiotis’ brilliant 2018 season, where the club won both the cup and championship.
She is strong on the ball with a good touch, and has excellent distribution skills.
At 19 years old she has made the decision to return to her junior club and Nora can’t wait to get started again.
“My 2017 season was one of the best seasons that I have ever had,” she said.
“When the offer came in to return to City the answer was simple.”
“I couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else.”
