Davis eyes Westfield W-League record


Cassidy Davis is on the verge of creating Westfield W-League history.

The co-captain of the Newcastle Jets will equal the record for consecutive W-League matches when the Jets host Canberra on Saturday.

Davis has started every game of the campaign thus fur and has proven her class, taking charge in both midfield and in defence.

Enjoying yet another consistent campaign for the Jets, the 26-year-old will make his 96th straight appearance, equalling the record held by Marianna Tabain.



“Yeah, she’s up there, 96 games without injury,” Coach Ash Wilson said.

“She’s a fierce competitor and looks after her body.”

Davis’ run extends back to 2013.

If all goes according to plan, the final match of the season will see Davis record her 97th match and claim the record as her own.

“For me, its unheard of and there are a few other girls in the team that would love to have a record like that,” Wilson said.

“It’s a credit to her and how she has managed herself and how she applies herself, her physical toughness and maybe a bit of luck too.”



With two games left in the season and finals no longer an option for the Jets, Davis will have her eyes set on the record.

But Wilson believes there’s no reason why the mid-fielder can’t reach even greater heights.

“It’s a fantastic record for her to have and she’s getting close to that 100 game for the Jets too, so they’re some great milestones for Cass,” Wilson said.
