Young gun Jordan Baker became boom club the Western Sydney Wanderers' latest signing.
The dynamic striker was a standout performer in the Rays' runners-up finish and had been training with the Wanderers throughout the pre-season, before signing a full-time deal this week.
It completes a drastic rise for Baker who, at 17, has already made a name for herself as one of the most dangerous attacking threats in the NSW Women's Premier League competition, saying the deal to move to a W-League club was a dream come true.
"I always wanted to [play in the W-League]. I just didn't think it would happen so soon," Baker said.
"It was definitely a shock. It was exciting as a 17-year-old because I guess I have never had anything big happen to me really. It is a big step."
Baker had been training with the Wanderers with fellow Stingrays Michelle Carney and Caitlin Cooper, before an injury to Kyah Simon opened the door for her to join the playing squad.
While it is uncertain what role she will play in the campaign, Baker said she was happy just to be a member of the training side.
"I'd love to play, but I am happy training and just learning lots," Baker said.
"Training is really good. It is very professional and is a lot different to what I have done so far.
"All the girls work hard constantly so it is good to be around girls who are always pushing each other constantly. If I get the call-up, well I guess I get the call-up. It would be fantastic."
Baker credited her season with the Stingrays as a pivotal reason behind her call-up.
Outgoing 2013 Stingrays coach Brett Wallin was confident she was ready for the step up in grade.
"She has got a real calmness in front of goal," he said.
