Australia’s Mary Fowler has signed for Manchester City on a four-year contract until June 2026.
Fowler began her career at Adelaide United where she made her professional debut in their opening match of 2019-20 season, with the Australian going on to score three goals in seven appearances before she was signed by Montpellier HSC in January 2020.
Following two-and-a-half years in Montpellier, Fowler has now decided to depart and take on a fresh challenge in English Football with Man City.
Speaking about her decision to join City on a four-year contract until June 2026, Fowler commented: “I’m really excited and proud to be joining this Club – it’s a team that I’ve always wanted to play for, so I’m honoured to have this opportunity.”
Fowler proceeded to praise Man City for their playing style and importance of style to winning as she added: “I really admire the team’s style of play – when City play, you see football and how beautiful it is, and you can really fall in love with the game just by watching them, both the women and the men’s teams.
“As much as I love winning, I enjoy doing it while playing attractive football and that was a huge part of my decision to join.”
Fowler though is only 19 years-old and has already scored seven goals in 24 international appearances for Australia, although the youngster is aware that she is “still young” with plenty to learn under “amazing coaching staff at City and quality teammates” in order to fulfil her potential.
Man City Women Head Coach, Gareth Taylor added that Fowler is amongst “… one of the most exciting young talents in the game right now and we’re absolutely thrilled to have her join us here at City.”
Taylor proceeded to praise Fowler for showing “maturity beyond her years” but iterated that she still needs “… to learn and grow as a player.”
On Fowler’s decision to commit to a four-year contract, Taylor said: “Having her put pen to paper on a four-year deal also speaks volumes about our own commitment and also ours as a Club to her development, and we can’t wait to start working with her.”
