Matildas star Samantha Kerr will captain Perth Glory's W-League team under new coach Bobby Despotovski this season.
Kerr has made more than 40 appearances for the Matildas and she played a key role in helping Glory win the minor premiership last season.
Glory went on to lose the grand final to Canberra United.
"It's an amazing opportunity for me," Kerr said. "I've had the taste of a championship at Sydney and we came close last year in the Grand Final.
"I hope we can go one step further this season."
