GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay women's soccer head coach Trevor Warren has announced the addition of Kimberley Seddon, a striker from Ashton Under Lyne, England, to his 2011 roster. She becomes one of 12 new players set to join the Phoenix in the fall.
Seddon is currently a member of Salford Ladies FC, which she joined in February. During her short stint at Salford FC, she has already scored three goals and had four assists in her first three games. Prior to joining Salford, Seddon played for Curzon Ashton where she scored six goals in four games, as well as an additional five goals in seven games as a junior. In the 2009 season, she netted 12 goals in eight games while appearing for Stockport County LFC.
"Kim is a quick forward who likes to use her pace to get in behind the defenses and play off the shoulder of the last defender," Warren said. "She likes to run at defenders and will work hard to be a constant threat to opponents' defenses. Kim is also a threat on set plays and corners with her ability to deliver shots and crosses. She will be a great compliment to the strikers we already have on the squad."
Seddon is currently studying at New Charter Academy which is a center for sporting excellence in Ashton Under Lyne in England.
She joins 11 other newcomers for 2011, as Devyn Alberts (Farmington, Minn.), Chandra Eigenberger (Green Bay, Wis.), Emily Friedl (Kenosha, Wis.), Jenna Harrington (Madison, Wis.), Abby Juzwik (Madison, Wis.), Hannah Kernen (Belleville, Wis.), Alisha Maciejewski (Neenah, Wis.), Katy Pilarzyk (Madison, Wis.), Alex Ronchak (Arden Hills, Minn.), Leah Seib (Waukesha, Wis.) and Sierra Valentine (Green Bay, Wis.) have already signed on to join the Phoenix next season.
