about chelsie dawber
Chelsie Dawber is fast emerging as one of the premier young attacking talents in Australian football. A skillful attacker who can play anywhere in the front third or through the midfield, she rose to prominence following a breakthrough 2020/21 W-League season.
A Mini Matildas (Australia U17) and Young Matildas (Australia U20) representative, she was part of the elite South Australian NTC Girls program during her teenage years before making her senior debut for Adelaide United as a 17-year-old in 2017.
A regular presence for Adelaide in recent seasons, Chelsie earned plaudits and recognition for her goal scoring exploits during the 2020/21 W-League season after scoring 5 goals in 8 games. These numbers saw her win the club’s Golden Boot award.
In November 2020, Chelsie was selected to take part in a five-day Women’s Talent ID Camp aimed at unearthing the next generation of Matildas stars. During the winter season, she scores goals for fun for Adelaide City in the NPLW South Australia competition.
