As a team I expect us to be competitive, work hard and place women's soccer on center stage in SWFL. We have a great group of women who can make a difference and serve as positive role models for all of youth soccer in the area.
Head Coach Vincent de Weger is happy with Marianna: " She is a player with power and leadership in defense. During the try-outs she picked up our way of playing really quick. Combine this with the aggression in her play and she is a real asset for our team. I look forward to work with Marianna this summer.
