Grand Rapids, MI – Grand Rapids Football Club is proud to announce that Clare and Mary Carlson have signed for the 2017 United Women’s Soccer season.
Clare’s reaction to signing with GRFC Women: “I have dreamed of the day that Grand Rapids would have a Women’s soccer team, and I am so excited that it is finally becoming a reality. The Men’s side has been such a joyful and successful addition to the Grand Rapids community, and I am confident that the Women’s team will add to that success this summer. I am extremely hungry for competition and look forward to playing with a group of some of the most talented players in West Michigan–one of those players being my very own little sister, Mary! Having the chance to continue my soccer career alongside my best friend is such a gift. My four years playing at the collegiate level have prepared me to bring exceptional work rate and tactical skills that I hope will contribute to our success on the field”.
Mary’s reaction to joining the squad: “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to be playing competitively back in Grand Rapids this summer. I am very excited to be playing with some of the top players in West Michigan, especially my older sister, Clare. I hope to bring grit and composure to the field along with positive energy. I am eager to see what the women’s team will add to this program and to the Grand Rapids community. I can’t wait to be back in Grand Rapids and represent my hometown!”
GRFC Women’s Head Coach Lewis Robinson on the signings: “”The Carlson sisters will bring great stability to our team and program this year. Clare is a very versatile player that possesses great leadership skills and an understanding of what is needed to win and be successful. Mary is a powerful center back with good ability on the ball who is constantly improving. Both Carlson’s possess exactly what we are looking for in our team and will be great additions to our squad this summer.”
