Kyah Simon notched up her 100th appearance in the W-League, playing the full 90 minutes as Melbourne City beat Perth Glory by the solitary goal at ABD Stadium in Round 6. Ellie Carpenter also had reason to celebrate, as she recorded a half-century of appearances in the same fixture.

Round 7 witnessed another Matilda join the 100 club, three-time W-League champion Alanna Kennedy playing a pivotal role in Sydney FC’s win over Adelaide United at Jubilee Stadium.

Natasha Dowie celebrated her 50th W-League appearance with a win as Melbourne Victory beat Perth Glory 2-1 at Dorrien Gardens.

Darian Jenkins scored her first goal for Melbourne Victory, celebrating her birthday in style as she doubled the Victory’s lead in their win over the Newcastle Jets.

Olivia Price put in a full shift for Canberra United in her 50th W-League match, although it wasn’t enough to halt the impressive Western Sydney Wanderers as they ran out winners 4-0 at McKellar Park.

Price provided an all-important assist for Leena Khamis the previous week, Canberra United defeating Adelaide United 2-1 as Marden Sports Complex. The goal puts Khamis in equal fifth on the all-time W-League goalscorer charts, joining Matildas legend Kate Gill on 42 goals.

Meanwhile, former W-League star Sam Kerr made her league debut for Chelsea overnight, instrumental in their 3-1 win over Reading. Kerr was unlucky not to score but dished off a superb back-heel assist in the first half to cap off a promising debut.

There were plenty of milestones in the A-League as well over the festive period.

Nathan Konstandopoulos played his 50th A-League match in Round 11 as Adelaide United were defeated by the Central Coast Mariners 2-1 in Gosford.

Despite suffering a Melbourne Derby loss, Curtis Good had reason to celebrate as he notched up his 50th A-League appearance for the club.

Joshua Brillante played his 150th A-League match against his former club Sydney FC, but he wasn’t able to steal the three points as City capitulated to a 2-1 loss at Jubilee Stadium. Meanwhile, Paulo Retre notched up his 50th A-League appearance with Sydney FC in the same match.

Matt Simon joined the 250 club with a substitute appearance against the Wellington Phoenix on the weekend. Simon becomes just the twelfth player in the A-League era to achieve this milestone.
