Two Greek Australians named in the CommBank Junior Matildas Squad


Zoe Karipidis and Peta Trimis have been named in the CommBank Junior Matildas squad to compete at the AFF U18 Women’s Championship 2022 in Palembang, Indonesia.

Karipidis is a defender for the Newcastle Jets and represents Northern NSW Football, while Trimis plays as a forward for the NSW Institute and Football NSW.

The two young Greek Australians will be joined by another 26 players to represent Australia against Malaysia, Myanmar and the Philippines in Group B of the tournament commencing on 22 July 2022.

Head Coach, Rae Dower, selected the final squad following four camps over the past six months. She said the team is “excited about the opportunity to travel to Indonesia” to participate in the championship.

“As a coaching unit, we’re delighted with the depth of talent within this age group,” Dower added.

“The technical quality and game awareness of the players was of a very high standard, and they’ve maintained that level when back with their respective clubs, which presented a welcomed headache when selecting the final squad.”

The tournament will be the CommBank Junior Matildas’ first international activity since their involvement in the 2019 AFC U16 Women’s Championship, where they finished fourth in the tournament three years ago.

It also marks the final Australian Women’s National Team to re-commence international action.
