Fleetwood Town Wrens Ladies are extremely proud to announce two first-team players in Sophia Woods and Frankie Sarsfield are jetting off to the USA as they commit to football scholarships!
Both Sophia and Frankie are regulars in the Wrens Ladies sides and have gained a lot of experience since joining the side over a year ago, with this experience earning them the chance to showcase their skills abroad.
With 13 starts to her name last season, and six goals, Sophia caught the eye of some schools over in the United States and, after making her decision, will now jet off to play for Georgia Southwestern State University this summer.
Whereas young forward, Frankie, has decided she will be representing St. Leo’s University of Florida after committing her future to the for the next few years.
When asked about their moves to the United States, here’s what each of them had to say:
“I’m looking forward to the challenge and the weather, but I’m going to miss the Fleetwood community! As a team, we are all really close and have good relationships with the coaches and will definitely be coming back to visit as soon as I’m back,” said Frankie.
Sophia added: “Fleetwood gave me the opportunity to play with, and against, more experienced players which is what I’ll be doing in America. I’m looking forward to the good weather and playing lots of matches but will miss all the players and coaches here.”
Congratulations to you both – good luck whilst in America!
