Australian soccer club Canberra United rounded out its roster with the signing of highly-rated American utility Taryn Hemmings.
The 25-year-old was a defensive midfielder with the Boston Breakers but has also had previous experience as a striker.
Hemmings enjoyed a stellar college career at University of Denver, where she finished her Pioneers career second on their all-time list with 112 points, consisting of 42 goals and 28 assists.
She was selected by the Breakers with the final selection in last year’s WPS draft before winning a place on the Boston’s roster.
“It’s fantastic to have a player of the calibre of Taryn Hemmings join what is already a strong squad,” Reid said.
“The addition of Taryn, who can play anywhere in the spine of the team, will give some extra versatility to the squad for 2011/12 and continues the fine work that the club has done recruiting for the forthcoming season."
