ATLANTA- Recent women’s soccer graduate Siobhan Wilson has signed a pro contract with Spanish club Málaga FC Femenino, as announced by the club Tuesday.
Wilson, who was a mid-year transfer from Clayton State, was a member of the squad for two years and a big part of the Panther defense. Taking a medical redshirt in 2016, she was also sidelined for part of 2017 due to injury.
Despite having to sit out part of her time at Georgia State, Wilson was able to earn over 700 minutes on the field. She fired 15 career shots for the Panthers, as well as helping lead the team to four shutouts. The London, England native led the team with three assists in 2017, scoring her first career goal over Little Rock on senior day.
Prior to her time at Georgia State, Wilson led Clayton State with seven assists and posted a pair of goals. A transfer to Clayton State from Hutchinson Community College, she helped guide the Jayhawks to a conference championship and was an NJCAA First-Team All-American.
“We are delighted that Siobhan has earned this opportunity,” head coach Ed Joyce said. “She had some bad luck with injuries during her time here but she really deserves this opportunity to play at the next level, and we look forward to tracking her progress.”
Wilson is the third women’s soccer alum to sign with a pro team, joining Christa Mann and Kay Harburger, and the first in almost a decade.
