Coach Gallimore on Albin
"Louise is a very technical player who has a great sense of the game of soccer. She will fit in well with our possession-oriented style of play. On the other side of the ball, and what originally attracted me to Louise as a player, is that she absolutely loves to defend. She has a natural tenacity, fight and competitiveness that make her a force defensively."
