Early life[edit]

Sydney FC[edit]

At the age of 16, Crummer made her professional debut for Sydney FC during the 2012–13 season helping the team win the league championship playing primarily as a defender.[5]

Brisbane Roar FC[edit]

The following season she returned to Queensland to play for Brisbane Roar for the 2013–14 season.[7] She made 13 appearances for the club and scored one goal.[8] The Roar finished fourth during the regular season with a 7–3–2 record.[8] The team advanced to the semi-finals where they defeated Canberra United 2–1[9] but were defeated 2–0 by Melbourne Victory in the Grand Final.[10]

Crummer returned to the Roar for the 2014 season and made ten appearances for the club.[8] The team finished in sixth place during the regular season.[8]

Melbourne City FC[edit]

In September 2015, Crummer signed with Melbourne City.[2] During the team's first match of the season against Sydney FC, she scored the team's first-ever goal in the 11th minute and followed with another in the last six minutes of the first half for a 6–0 win.[11] On 21 November, she scored a brace to help defeat her former team Brisbane Roar 4–0.[12] On 6 December, she scored a brace against Melbourne Victory contributing to City's 4–0 win over the rival team and extending City's regular season record to 8–0–0.[13]

In May 2016 Crummer signed on loan at Victorian NPLW club Alamein FC. She returned to Melbourne City for the 2016-17 W-League campaign, but after making only three appearances her season was cut short by a foot injury in January 2017.[14]

Seattle Reign FC[edit]

In January 2017, Crummer signed with Seattle Reign FC, effective upon the conclusion of the 2016–17 W-League season.[15]


At the age of 14, Crummer was called up to the Young Matildas.[6] She made her debut for the Matildas and scored her first international goal against the Netherlands in March 2015.[16] The same year, she was the youngest player on the team at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada where she made two appearances for Australia.[17][18]

Crummer was again called in to the Matildas for the 2016 AFC Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament, but she suffered a knee injury during a training match prior to the competition and was replaced on the squad by Ashleigh Sykes.[19] She recovered in time to be named to the Matildas' Olympic squad,[20] where she made two appearances as a substitute.
