Ellyse Perry: Cricket or Soccer?
Australia’s allrounder Ellyse Perry quit football club Canberra United yesterday after the club asked her to choose between cricket and football. Speaking to Adam Spencer from ABC radio, she said that she wanted to continue playing both sports and needed to find a new football club for the next season.
“I’m not sure where I’ll be playing soccer next season as the season is really far away and most clubs have not started planning their playing roster,” Perry said. “I would consider an offer from a Sydney team (if it was made). Sydney Football Club is an incredible team, they have been involved in the final since the start of the W-League and have a number of very good players.”
