Australian international winger Caitlin Foord tweeted on Monday that she will play for Sky Blue FC this season in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Foord would be considered a “discovery player” under NWSL rules, having not been picked up during the free agency period or during the supplemental draft.
The 18-year-old primarily plays on the right side — in the back or in midfield — and already has a World Cup under her belt from her time with the team during Germany 2011.
Foord will play alongside fellow Australian striker Lisa De Vanna at Sky Blue FC. De Vanna was signed as one of the team’s four free agents on Feb. 1. Australian Samantha Kerr was signed by the Western New York Flash for the upcoming season, while fellow Matilda Kyah Simon will return to the Boston Breakers in 2013, where she played last year in WPSL Elite.
Here’s Foord’s tweet:
