Sky Blue FC forward Leah Galton has been turning heads in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) this season, and her electric play has now led the Harrogate native to receiving her first call-up to the senior England Women’s National Team.
Lionesses head coach Mark Sampson made the move official by naming Galton to his 23-player roster for a week-long training camp that begins Sunday.
Galton has represented England at the U-17 and U-19 levels, also playing a key role for its U-23 side at the La Manga Tournament this past March. Sky Blue FC selected her with the 13th overall pick in the 2016 NWSL College Draft after the 2015 MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist registered 122 career points at Hofstra University — a program record. She also earned Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Year accolades over her last three seasons at Hofstra as the only player in CAA history to do so.
Flex and individual tickets for Sky Blue FC are on sale now. For any questions regarding tickets, call the Sky Blue FC tickets department at 888-SBFC-TIX (888-723-2849), and a team representative will be happy to assist you.
