Perth Glory midfielder Tash Rigby played her 50th game for the club on Saturday against Sydney FC. Rigby, who is a PFA Delegate, has not missed a single game – having played 50 straight for Glory across four seasons – and her teammates paid tribute to her achievement post-match with a touching team photo and ‘5-0’ hand gesture.

Two other Glory players reached milestones in the A-League, with Jake Brimmer playing his 50th match, while Liam Reddy reached his 100th appearance.

Reddy is fourth on the all-time appearances list with 296 A-League appearances, four appearance shy of joining the 300 club, which includes current players Leigh Broxham (307), Nikolai Topor-Stanley (310) and Andrew Durante (331). 

In the W-League, Victory’s duo of Casey Dumont and Amy Jackson reached 100 matches in the W-League during their 7-0 thumping of Newcastle Jets, strengthening Victory’s case for a finals position ahead.

Jackson, 32, returned to Victory ahead of this season, having made 56 of her 99 Westfield W-League appearances for the club. Dumont signed with Victory in 2017, and has started all of the club’s games in 2019/20.

American Celeste Boureille also played her 50th match in the W-League.  The 25-year-old San Francisco-born midfielder started her career with Canberra United in 2016, and has since spent the past three W-League seasons with Brisbane Roar, on-loan from NWSL powerhouse, Portland Thorns.

On Sunday evening, Sydney FC’s young duo of Marco Tilio and Harry Van der Saag helped guide Sydney to a 3-0 win over Central Coast Mariners, with 18-year-old Tilio coming off the bench in the 88th minute to score within just 1 minute and 15 seconds of his entry – an A-League record for the fastest debut goal.

Tilio then set up 20-year-old his fellow substitute Van der Saag who scored his first goal in the A-League with a cracking strike into the top corner.

In her first game for Arsenal Women, Caitlin Foord scored in their 2-0 win over Lewes, while Chloe Logarzo debuted and played 90 minutes for Bristol City in their win over Birmingham City, which moved Bristol out of the relegation zone.
