Talia Younis breaks Sam Kerr’s record for the youngest A-League player in history

14-year-old Talia Younis has broken Sam Kerr’s long-standing record as the youngest player in A-League history.

Australian star Sam Kerr held the record as the youngest player to make an appearance in the A-League, debuting at the age of 15 for Perth Glory. However, Talia Younis has now broken that record.

Younis made her A-League debut as a substitute for Western Sydney Wanderers at the age of 14, and she is 49 days younger than Kerr was when she made her debut for Perth. She is also the first player born after the inception of the competition in 2008 to make her A-League debut.

Western Sydney had to secure an exemption to allow Talia Younis to play due to her age; she was born in 2008.

We have to see if Talia Younis will start when Western Sydney Wanderers’ women’s team plays against Western United on Saturday.
