McCall Zerboni Returns to WNY Flash

06/14/2016 7:41 AM -

The Western New York Flash have acquired McCall Zerboni in a deal that sends a 2017 NWSL College Draft Pick to the Boston Breakers. Zerboni was a member of the Flash’s 2011 Women’s Professional Soccer and 2012 Women’s Premier Soccer League Elite championship-winning teams, as well as its 2013 and 2014 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) campaigns. Zerboni, 29, made eight appearances (eight starts) with the Breakers this season.

Flash head coach Paul Riley described Zerboni’s first stint with the Flash as “a huge success” and believes “she can reproduce her best form and propel the team forward.” The Camarillo, Calif., native made a total of 44 appearances (43 starts) with the Flash in the NWSL era so far – the second most capped player in team history – and sits ninth in all-time goals for the club (4).
 
“McCall is a great professional who understands the process and what it takes to perform day in and day out,” added Riley. “We needed to add quality, experience and depth to our midfield, and McCall ticks all the boxes. Her work rate, resilience and character will be massive for our young group, and we look forward to integrating her into our competitive training environment.”
 
Though returning to the team she has spent most of her professional career with, the Flash have had a complete turnover from the last time she played for Western New York in 2014. Despite all the changes, the midfielder may find some familiar qualities within the team. Zerboni left the Flash for Portland Thorns FC in 2015, when Riley served as head coach for the team. Current Flash assistant coach Scott Vallow and defender Courtney Niemiec were also a part of the 2015 Thorns. Zerboni will also join fellow former UCLA Bruins Abby Dahlkemper, Samantha Mewis, Katelyn Rowland and Taylor Smith as she makes her return to the Flash.
 
The Western New York Flash look to pull away in the NWSL standings against undefeated Portland Thorns FC on Friday, June 17, at 7:00 p.m. at Rochester Rhinos Stadium in Rochester, N.Y. Tickets are available for the match at wnyflash.com/tickets with a live stream at youtube.com/NWSL.
