Catley and Foord have been joined on the field by Kyra Cooney-Cross this year.
"I think it's always nice to have fellow Aussies around," Catley tells WHO. "I think it always just gives you a little taste of home and yeah, [Kyra] is obviously sort of at the start of everything for her which is really exciting. It's like a totally different realm to where I'm at in my career, so I think it's nice that I can be there for her, when she's navigating some of the tough times that you go through when you first come to a to an elite club to a really competitive environment.
"And, you know, she's got Cait and I here. And obviously, lots of the other girls are here in London and in the WSL, in general. So she's got lots of Australians around her. And she's doing really, really well. She's learning so much. And I've seen her her game grow so much already. So she's put herself in a great position. And, yeah, it's nice to be able to go through the process with that. Yeah, yeah."
