FLASH SIGN TEIGEN ALLEN

06/09/2014 12:00 PM -

The Western New York Flash has announced the signing of Australian National Team defender Teigen Allen. Allen will join the Flash pending the receipt of her P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC). Per team and league policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

With the addition of Allen, the Flash roster will now boast three members of the Australia Women’s National Team as she joins teammates Lydia Williams and Samantha Kerr in Rochester. She will also fill the Flash’s fifth and final international roster spot.

“Teigen is a player that I have been looking at for a while,” said Flash General Manager and Head Coach Aaran Lines. “She performed very well recently with the Australian National Team at the Asian Cup and was available immediately. I thought the timing was right to add a very good defender who can attack out of the outside back position.”

Allen, 20, comes to the Flash fresh off Australia’s appearance in the AFC Asian Cup Final. The Sydney native appeared in all five of the Matildas matches, starting in all but one, and helped her country qualify for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The defender was also a member of the Matildas 2010 Asian Cup Championship team. She would go on to play in the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup with Australia, appearing in two games of the tournament.

Allen has played for the Western Sydney Wanderers of the Australian W-League since the team’s inception in the 2012-13 season, making 21 appearances and scoring her first goal on November 11, 2012.

Before appearing with the Wanderers, Allen was a member of Sydney FC from 2009-2012 where she saw time in 29 contests.
