One of our outstanding goalkeeping prospects; Maddie Elbro left the UK today to begin life at Mercyhurst University in Pennsylvania. Maddie, who was the youngest player to play for the Wolverhampton Wanderers Ladies First X1 (just 16 years of age), joined Sporting Chance USA at the age of 15 and was soon attracting the attention of a number of US College Women’s Soccer Coaches. One of the first coaches in for her was Coach Jon Arlet at Mercyhurst University. Over the past two years Coach Arlet & Maddie have kept in regular contact and following an excellent offer of scholarship Maddie was delighted to commit to Mercyhurst for the next four years.
Everyone at Sporting Chance USA would like to wish Maddie every success for the future.
