The Houston Dash announced the re-signing of veteran midfielder Becky Edwards. In a season that ends tonight against Sky Blue FC, the 25 year old has logged more minutes following a lost season in 2013 due an ACL tear than any other Houston player. Following tonight’s match, Edwards will be on loan to Swedish club Kristianstads DFF with whom she played 18 matches in 2012.
As a holding mid, Edwards experience and leadership became even more important to the team when fellow midfielder Britany Bock went down with a torn MCL nine minutes into Houston’s inaugural season. A leader by example, the former U-20 captain of the 2008 World Champions and member of the 2011 U-23 squad that won the Four Nations title, Edwards has been instrumental in Houston’s quick development into a competitive opponent.
"She brings a calmness and composure to our midfield,” said head coach Randy Waldrum. "If we continue to work on her game and being a little more dynamic, I think this is a player that's already one of the best in the league and I think we can still take her game to a higher level. Really, really excited that we got her re-signed and committed to us."
With the season drawing to a close, Houston has begun looking forward to building on what was begun last December and the signing of Edwards is the first major step.
“She is a key component for us moving forward,” continued Waldrum. “She is a main piece in building next year’s squad.”
Edwards for her part was just happy to be remaining in one place for another year as she tweeted out to her fans following the contract extension, “really excited to be staying in Houston.”
