Her 2018 so far:
Catley has been an integral part of Melbourne City's Westfield W-League dominance in recent seasons, and the 24-year-old was once again at the heart of everything good about City in 2017/18.
The fullback was an absolute menace going forward for Patrick Kisnorbo's side and her ability to create opportunities for teammates through her purposeful attacking play saw Catley among the top performers in the competition.
Catley guided City to the 2017/18 Championship - her second consecutive with Melbourne and third overall - to cap off what was another sensational year in the Westfield W-League.
Having traded Orlando Pride for Seattle Reign at the start of the year, Catley has continued her stellar form in the NWSL, where her deadly left foot has registered three assists.
She's made nine appearances in total for Premiership contenders, who are currently the best defensive side in the NWSL.
