Picture this.

Mick in a penalty shootout.

Up against the A-League Women’s top goal scorer and former Matilda Michelle Heyman.

Did Mick stand a chance?


Was Mick still willing to give it a go even though he’d most definitely make a fool of himself?



Before Mick injured himself in a game of OZ TAG, he pitched this idea to the Canberra United team.

If he won, He’d become an honorary member for the 2022/2023 season.

While if he lost, he would have to become their mascot for the entire season, jumping out at every home game and cheering on the girls.

So, when he got the chance to ask former Matilda and Canberra United captain, Michelle Heyman who was the best (and worst) penalty taker, he jumped at the chance!

After returning to the club in 2020, Michelle is excited to see so many new faces in the team for the upcoming season. But is more excited to be back at their fortress that is McKellar Park.

“I love that place,” she said. “For myself… I remember my parents sitting in the stands and smiling and loving life, so it brings back good memories.”


And with the Liberty A-League Women’s season starting this weekend, what better training than a penalty shootout!


With Mick hurting his ACL and sustaining two fractures in his new as well, the PK shootout was postponed. We think he’s faking it just to get out of it, but only time will tell.
