Westfield Matildas stars Elise Kellond-Knight and Tameka Butt will be spearheading Melbourne City's Championship defence for the upcoming Westfield W-League 2018/19 season.
The former Brisbane Roar duo and Australian national team midfield generals have joined City alongside returning Aussie teammates Steph Catley and Kyah Simon.

“We’ve secured a number of top-class new signings for the 2018/19 season, that will add to the quality the returning players have demonstrated these past few seasons,” Melbourne coach Rado Vidosic told the club's official website.
“We all know the quality Tameka and Elise can bring to the team following their many successful performances for the Matildas, particularly during the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup."
City have also bolstered their attack with the arrival of former Western Sydney Wanderers forward Helen Caceres and ex-Adelaide and Newcastle striker Adriana Jones, who will provide Vidosic with additional firepower in the final third.
