NPL 2018 player update: Big year predicted for lethal leftie Talitha Doro

By Juniors Editor on

Lacing up her boots for her third season at The Gap, Talitha Doro brings pace and a powerful left kick to the NPLW team for 2018.

A strong, consistent player, who started playing football in Warwick with her sisters, after four seasons with Southwest Thunder, Doro moved to Brisbane to study, which gave her the opportunity to further hone her skills at The Gap. Before joining The Gap, Doro trained for two seasons at QAS as part of the U17 Australian team.

Doro also played in the U19 Australian Schools team for two consecutive years, playing in tournaments in the United Kingdom in 2014 and 2015. An excellent 2015 season also saw Doro playing in the NPLW "All Stars" team in a friendly game against The Roar.

“I re-signed at The Gap this year as it has a great club environment and everyone gives their all at training. The Gap NPLW Open team is a great team to play for and I enjoy training with them each week.”

Coach Rob Askew said, “I think this is a big year for Talitha. I genuinely believe that she has the capacity to play W-League if she sets her mind to it. She has the technical ability to play in tight areas, maintain possession under pressure and to beat her opponent in one-on-one situations. She also has an amazing left foot which, along with Charlie Mclennan, make our left side a problem for opposition teams.”
