Caitlin Foord has written in support of the Matildas culture, as the fallout from the Lisa De Vanna bullying and harrassment allegations continue.
On Monday morning, the Matildas posted a statement online saying "we have a strong professional, inclusive and supportive culture that does not condone any of the behaviour mentioned within the numerous media articles about historical incidents".
In support of the statement, 15 Matildas players offered personal comments on social media, including the Shellharbour junior.
"From the moment I stepped into the Matildas environment as a 16yr (sic) old, this has been my safe place and the professional environment has helped me to grow into the player&person (sic) i am today. I stand with my teammates / second family in full support of this collective statement," Foord wrote.
The players said they would work with the governing bodies to ensure situations like De Vanna has alleged will now happen in the future.
"We acknowledge the seriousness of Lisa's allegations about the past and we empathise with her for not feeling like she could come forth earlier," the statement reads.
"We will work with Football Australia, the PFA and Sport Integrity Australia to ensure that all current and future players feel comfortable, safe and able to report instances of inappropriate behaviour, in a timely manner. There must also be a trusted process to deal with these complaints."
De Vanna, a former Matildas striker, alleges she suffered same-sex sexual harassment, abuse and bullying during her decorated 150-game international career.
Her former teammate and W-League stalwart Rhali Dobson also alleges she was a target of sexual harassment in her career.
Football Australia (FA) is calling on any player, retired or current, to make formal complaints.
FA chief executive James Johnson says any such complaint will be handled by Sport Integrity Australia (SIA) and not football's governing body.
"This will ensure that matters like those raised by Lisa and Rhali are dealt with appropriately and individuals have the right support around them in an independent way," Johnson said in a video last week.
"We must acknowledge that at the centre of this, we have two players who have shown great courage to speak about and to share their personal experiences.
"Lisa and Rhali, we see you and we hear you."
De Vanna, Australia's second-highest goalscorer in senior internationals, alleged abuse dating back to 2001 when she joined the Young Matildas squad as a 17-year-old.
De Vanna said she had been sexually harassed, bullied and ostracised because of her reactions to such incidents. with AAP
