Tinton Falls, N.J. (May 4, 2018) – Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) announced today that the team has officially waived defender Erin Simon.
A New Jersey native, Simon first arrived at Sky Blue FC through the open tryouts process ahead of the 2016 NWSL season. After receiving an invitation into preseason camp, she quickly earned a professional contract and then a starting spot on the Sky Blue FC back line. During her rookie campaign, the New Jersey native made 18 starts over 19 appearances, tallying a pair of assists. Simon suffered a left foot fracture in 2017, limiting her season to seven starts on seven appearances. This year, she began the 2018 season on the 45-day disabled list after having hardware removed from her left foot.
In other roster news, Sky Blue FC has seen the addition of two players to its available roster since the team last took the field two weeks ago. Midfielder Thaisa Moreno has returned to the club after helping Brazil win the 2018 Copa América Femenina, and defender Amanda Frisbie is now in camp with Sky Blue FC after the team selected her in the 2018 NWSL Dispersal Draft in January.
Sky Blue FC returns home to Yurcak Field on Saturday to host the Houston Dash for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Tickets for that match are available now online or by calling 888-SBFC-TIX (888-723-2849).
