The Sydney Flames are excited to announce that sharpshooter Emma Clarke has re-signed with the club for two years.

Clarke, who has spent the past two seasons with the Hoops Capital club, joins Cayla George, Lauren Nicholson, and Shaneice Swain as contracted players on Gull Molloy’s roster for WNBL25.

“I believe last season didn’t reflect our ability and many of us left the season disappointed. So hungry to win more games and go deep into finals”, said Clarke


The Perth native, who has averaged six points, 3.6 rebounds, and more than one triple per game (while shooting 39.5 percent from downtown) across her 41 appearances for the Harbour City club,

“I believe the coaching staff will put me in the best position to be successful in the style of play and tap into my strengths to use them to the best of my ability.

“After chatting with Guy and Renae, I’m excited to continue improving on the things I need to, to reach the career goals I have in the league as well as representing Australia,” said the Australian 3×3 Gangurrus representative.

Flames head coach Guy Molloy is thrilled to have the 24-yeard-old wing-back at the club for two more WNBL seasons.

“From a club perspective, one of my mantras is cohesiveness and attempting to grow together with a core group of players that are the right fit for the Flames – which Emma does,” said Molloy, who is entering his second season in Sydney.

“Emma had a strong season last year but being the age she is, I know she can take her game to another level and add different dimensions to her play.

“Her size, talent, versatility, and shoot-ability mixed in with her dedication and work rate to improve her game, makes her an exciting player for our team and one that compliments the other pieces we have on our roster.

“She bought into our program last season, being extremely diligent in her approach to all aspects of the game, which makes me confident she can add more signature skills to her repertoire – on both sides of the ball – as her game continues to evolve.

“She’s an exciting player and one that I’m thrilled to have back in Sydney, as we look to build on the new style of play we created last season – one which connected to our Flames fans in a different way.”

The security of a two-year deal sees Clark now focused solely on the Flames, seeing the club as a platform to thrive and grow her talents.

“I think it is the best place for me to continue to grow my game and make my mark on the league. The 2-year contract gives me confidence that the coaching staff and club believe in me long term.”
