Breakers acquire Jones, swap picks with Kansas City

The Boston Breakers have acquired forward Courtney Jones and the No. 7 overall pick in the 2014 National Women’s Soccer League college draft from FC Kansas City in exchange for the No. 4 overall pick.

Jones returns to Boston, where she played the 2012 WPSL Elite League season, and the Breakers now own the No. 7, 20 and 28 picks in the draft. They traded their 2nd round pick–No. 12 overall–to Western New York last season for Melinda Mercado.  Jones scored four goals in 22 games, mainly as a reserve, for FC Kansas City this past season.

“I am delighted to be bringing Courtney back to Boston,” Boston Breakers General Manager Lee Billiard said. “She was fantastic for us on and off the field a couple years ago. She will add athleticism, quality, and a strong competitive attitude to the group. I believe this is a great move for us.”
