Liberty A-League Women

Isabel Gomez (Central Coast Mariners)

Gomez had a brilliant month in the heart of midfield for the Central Coast Mariners, helping the A-League Women’s newest side secure a place in the finals. The midfielder played every minute of the Mariners’ five fixtures in March, continuing her fine season for Emily Husband’s side.

Emily Gielnik (Melbourne Victory)

After an injury interrupted year, Gielnik roared back into form in March. The Melbourne Victory striker scored four goals – including a hat-trick against Adelaide United – and helped herself to two assists, as her form not only helped Jeff Hopkins’ side secure a finals berth but also a recall to the Matildas squad.

Taylor Otto (Melbourne City FC)

Otto was integral in City’s push for the Premier’s Plate in March, playing a key role in securing the first piece of A-League Women’s silverware on offer this season. The American defender and her City teammates only conceded three goals throughout the entire month of March, and secured three clean sheets. Otto also helped herself to a goal in City’s 3-0 win over Central Coast Mariners, her second goal of the season.

Alyssa Whinham (Wellington Phoenix)

Whinham put together a solid month to end the season for Wellington Phoenix, headlined by her starring performance against Perth Glory. The New Zealander scored and provided an assist in their 3-1 win over Glory, which helped keep their faint finals hopes alive at the time. Overall, Whinham was one of Wellington’s better contributors throughout the final month, where they won three out of their final five matches.

Cortnee Vine (Sydney FC)

Vine ended the A-League Women’s regular season with a flurry. The Sydney FC attacker scored five goals – including braces against Wellington Phoenix and Western United – and tallied three assists throughout a sensational month of March. Her performances also earned Vine a recall to the Matildas squad for their upcoming friendly against Mexico.

Sarina Bolden (Newcastle Jets)

Bolden’s brilliant season with Newcastle Jets continued in March, helping her side secure a finals berth for the first time since 2018. The Phillipines international scored once against Western United and added five assists, including three in their rampant 8-0 win over Adelaide United. She ended the regular season with a stunning 12 goals and nine assists, leading all comers in the assists charts.

Isuzu UTE A-League Men

The attacking midfielder scored a brace in their 3-1 win over Adelaide United and earned a call-up to the New Zealand national team at the end of an impressive month for the youngster.

Danny Vukovic (Central Coast Mariners)

Vukovic was brilliant between the sticks for the Central Coast Mariners throughout March. The veteran goalkeeper helped keep two clean sheets in their wins over Macarthur FC and Newcastle Jets, taking his tally to a league high 10 for the season. He also became the first goalkeeper in league history to bring up 100 clean sheets for his entire career.

Anthony Caceres (Sydney FC)

Caceres has been key to Sydney FC’s mid-season revival, putting in a string of impressive shifts in the heart of midfield. The Sky Blues veteran played a big role in their Sydney Derby drubbing of the Western Sydney Wanderers, and helped himself to a goal in their statement 2-0 win over Central Coast Mariners, along with an assist in a 2-1 loss to Wellington Phoenix.

Adam Taggart (Perth Glory)

Taggart continued shine in March, scoring three goals to take his tally to 15 goals for the season, one shy of his A-League season best which came in the 2013-14 campaign with Newcastle Jets. The Perth Glory striker banged home a brace against the Jets, along with another in their 2-1 loss to Western Sydney Wanderers, earning a recall to the Socceroos squad off the back of his string of good performances out west.

Zinedine Machach (Melbourne Victory)

The Melbourne Victory cult hero had a fine month in March, as he continued his brilliant first season in Australia. Machach scored a stunning goal in their 3-2 loss to Brisbane Roar, before getting an assist for Bruno Fornaroli in Victory’s win over Perth Glory. He capped it off by signing a new contract extension with the club for a further two seasons.
