Box Hill United are pleased to announce the re-signing of hardworking striker Emma Langley as part of our senior women’s team for season 2020.
Langley, from Tasmania, hit the strides immediately when she joined Box Hill midway through last season. She announced herself in stunning fashion during her debut in the NPLW Round 16, with a goal and an assist in a 2-1 victory against South Melbourne on home turf.
Langley then went on to form an impressive partnership in Box Hill’s three-pronged attacking unit, alongside strikers Emma Hubbard and Maja Markovski, ultimately ending the season with 12 appearances and three goals.
Pleased to be back in familiar surroundings, Langley said, “It’s good be back and rebuild from last year, and have the core group of girls from last year.
“I want to be fit and ready for the next season. But it’s good to be in form at the end of the year, and bringing it into next year.”
With a new coaching set-up in place for Box Hill’s ladies in 2020, following appointment of Jorge Leon as the senior head coach, Langley is keen to stamp her authority onto the scheme of things.
The 23-year-old said, “I can use my pace, playing with my back to the goal and bouncing off our midfield, so we can transition quickly and do those quick one-two touches. Hopefully, we can build from more attacking play rather than being defensive.”
As a true team-player, the former Heidelberg United goal-getter added regarding her objectives for the new season, “Obviously, [it’s about] being able to score more goals, and help the team win; assist some more too. [It’s also about] doing something extra, to try and get my finishing right to help the girls win.”
