Seattle Reign FC Sign Goalkeeper Lydia Williams
Seattle Reign FC has announced the signing of Australian international goalkeeper Lydia Williams for the 2018 NWSL season. Per team and league policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.
“I’m excited to be joining the Reign right from the beginning for the 2018 season,” said Williams. “The club has a specific direction in mind, and I think we will play an entertaining style of football. We will be ready to compete from day one.”
Williams appeared in, and started, 11 matches during the 2017 NWSL season. Three of those matches were with Reign FC, as the club acquired the Australian international through a trade with the Houston Dash just prior to the trade deadline.
In her three matches with Reign FC, Williams made 10 saves and allowed two goals. Williams had one shutout with Seattle, coming in her first match with the club on September 3rd against the Houston Dash.
“Signing Lydia was one of the main goals for our organization in the off-season,” said Seattle Reign FC head coach Vlatko Andonovski. “Lydia is a top class goalkeeper. Having her back will give calmness and confidence to our team.”
