STATESBORO, Ga. – South Georgia Tormenta FC has announced the addition of defender Emma Tucker to its 2023 USL W League roster, pending league and federation approval. Tucker joins Tormenta FC ahead of its title defending season and will look to impress all season long in the right back position.
“Emma is a strong one-v-one defender who can get forward and support the attack. Her field coverage is excellent, and she can combine in the final third and provide quality service from wide areas. She also brings a ton of experience from the toughest women’s soccer conference in the NCAA. She will be a great fit in our system and style of play. I look forward to watching her play this summer.”Jim Robbins, Tormenta FC’s USL W League Head Coach
Tucker brings four years of playing experience at the University of Miami. In 2022, Tucker played 13 games for Miami, starting twelve. Since 2019, Tucker has racked up 54 games for the Division I program. Tucker becomes the first University of Miami player to feature for Tormenta FC’s USL W League team.
In June of 2021, Tormenta FC was named a founding member of the USL W League, an elite pre-professional pathway for women looking to build their careers both on and off the pitch. Tormenta FC won its first-ever USL W League title in 2022 after defeating the Minnesota Aurora in front of 6,500 fans in Eagan, Minnesota.
Tormenta FC provides opportunities to local and national players to develop and start their professional careers in Statesboro, Georgia. In just one year, Tormenta FC’s USL W League team has produced six professional players with Sydney Martinez joining Jenae Packard, Emily Burke, Kelly Giddes, Abigail Wolf and Jodi Medina as the latest player to sign a contract in Europe.
