The Western New York Flash have snatched up a strong group of free agents, taking advantage of the fifth free agent slot the team was granted by the National Women’s Soccer League.
As first reported by Jeff DiVeronica of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, the Flash have signed Americans Brittany Taylor, Sarah Huffman and McCall Zerboni (as revealed earlier this week), plus Spanish forward Adriana and Australian attacker Samantha Kerr.
Western New York was granted a fifth free agent slot because the team was only allocated six national team players. Every other NWSL team was allocated seven national team players, although injuries and short-term contracts have affected team situations and allowed for five free agents in Chicago, Seattle and Washington, as well.
Zerboni captained the Flash last season in the WPSL Elite League. Adriana also played with the team last season.
