Back for her fifth season at The Gap, talented midfielder, Jess Dillon, is looking forward to the challenge that the new NPLW structure brings in 2018.
Jess has been honing her skills in the Queensland and Australian Schools football and fustal competitions since she was 12, representing her state and country on many occasions throughout her school life. Jess also trained at the Queensland Academy of Sport for three years and played in China as part of the AFC U17 Australian World Cup team. As a senior player Jess pulled on her boots for Perth Glory in 2013 and Toronto's Lady Lynx W- League team in 2014.
Returning to Australian shores in 2015 and The Gap Football Club, Jess has played an integral part in the recent success of the Women's Open team, sharing her experience and assisting the development of younger team members.
"I enjoy the style of football that Rob Askew wants us to play. At training we constantly push each other which reflects in our past successes. The are no real egos in the team, so this means that we all work very well together which makes playing at The Gap more enjoyable."
Coach Rob Askew said, “JD is definitely well and truly part of our leadership group now. She has a great passion for the game and a desire to be successful which shows in her effort at training and games. Her excellent technique, composure and football IQ make here the perfect 6 for our style of football.”
Welcome back Jess.
