The Orlando Pride continued building for the upcoming National Women’s Soccer League season.
Kristen Edmonds, Carson Pickett, and Emily van Egmond signed new one-year contracts with the Pride, the club announced Friday.
Pickett’s deal includes an option for an additional year.
“We’re very excited that Emily, Carson and Kristen have signed for the new season,” Orlando Pride coach Marc Skinner said. “Coming off a strong season in Australia, we are really pleased to have Emily back in Orlando and look forward to continuing her great form and showing all of her qualities in a Pride jersey.”
“It’s important that we continue to have players with technical qualities to compete at a really high level, and Carson fits that mold,” added Skinner. “Kristen has the ability to excel in 1v1 areas and this allows her to be a real threat. We’re looking forward to Kristen producing her best performances in the coming season.”
