Tenacious defender Emily Smith commits to the Pilots for the 2019 soccer season.
Despite the break for the Christmas season, Head coach Tory Walker announced today that he has signed another British Columbia talent, defender Emily Smith to the 2019 soccer season. Emily comes to Providence to study in the psychology program and brings a lot of speed and physicality.
“We are really excited to add Emily to our roster for next year” Says Walker, “She is a tough player to play against, she brings grit and skill to our back line as well as a great personality and character, which is what we look for when building our team. Emily will be another piece to building a strong team that can build an attack from our back line.”
Last summer Emily’s club team made provincials and she won Defender of the match during their Provincial run. Emily comments on joining the Pilots by saying “I am very excited to be apart of this team and the experiences to come!”
Welcome to the Pilot family Emily!
