About Charlotte Grant
20-year-old Charlotte Grant headlines the recent cohort of Young Matildas to transition into Tony Gustavsson's Australian squad over the past 18 months, with the defender having now established herself within the national team, starting in the backline against several top-class nations, since her debut in late 2021.
Grant was earmarked at a young age to star for her hometown club Adelaide United, making her A-League women's debut as a 17-year-old, helping push the previously unfancied United side into regular finals contention.
After an impressive 2020/21 campaign, the then 19-year-old was introduced into the Commbank Matildas squad, with Gustavsson showing his faith in the centre-back immediately, with early appearances against the United States, which then translated into further selection for the Asian Cup in India, just three months later.
The South Australian would use this exposure to push for a dream move to Scandinavia, recently signing with Swedish giants Rosengård, linking with fellow Australian hero Teagan Micah, to form one of the league's more formidable defences.
