Midfielder Sinead Farrelly has been selected by the Seattle Reign FC off the NWSL Re-Entry Wire as part of the league’s End of Season Process.
Farrelly, who has tallied three goals and two assists in her 52 NWSL appearances, was placed on the season-ending injury list earlier this year, which caused her to sit out the entire campaign for the Boston Breakers. The Havertown, Pa. native, 26, played for FC Kansas City in 2013, before spending two years with Portland Thorns FC in ’14 and ’15.
Twelve players were left off the Re-Entry Wire, which include Eunice Beckmann (Boston Breakers), Ellie Brush (Houston Dash), Janice Cayman (Western New York Flash), Michelle Cruz (Seattle Reign FC), Laura Del Rio (Washington Spirit), Ghoutia Karchouni (Boston Breakers), Jami Kranich (Boston Breakers), Molly Menchel (FC Kansas City), Kaitlyn Savage (Orlando Pride), Kathryn Schoepfer (Boston Breakers), Jennifer Skogerboe (Portland Thorns FC) and Rachel Wood (Boston Breakers).
