“Alanna is a versatile player who can play as a defensive midfielder but also as a central defender. She brings positive energy to any team and will be a strong asset for the Flash this year,” Flash General Manager Rich Randall said. “Alanna had a great World Cup and W-League season and, at just 21-years-old, has a very bright future in the NWSL.”
The signing could mean a move to midfield for Abby Erceg who the Flash acquired earlier this offseason in a trade with the Chicago Red Stars.
Kennedy is part of Australia’s Olympic qualifying roster. The Matildas kick off a grueling qualifying tournament this weekend against host Japan.
