“I’m excited to be playing again. It’s been a long 12 months and I can’t wait to get back out there.”
“Without a doubt the recovery was the hardest time of my life, but it taught me a lot and I just can’t wait to be back on the field and it’s not too far away now.”
Harrison went on to say that Sydney have done a wonderful job so far this seaosn and built a great platform to work from
“I think the girls have done really well so far this season. They’ve built a strong platform, each week they’re looking better and it’s all coming together at the right time of the year.”
Sydney FC coach Dan Barrett praised Harrison for her hard work in recovery and was pleased to have her as part of the playing group again
“I have seen her dedication that has got her to this point and I know it has been a long and tough road for her”.
“Her commitment to getting herself fit again has been second to none. She is a quality player and a quality person to have back around the playing group full time.”
