Plymouth excited by Brittany signing

Plymouth excited by Brittany signing - 28 Jun 2010 - Women's Football NewsThe signing of Cody Toppert will not only excite the fans of the Plymouth Raiders, but indirectly, Plymouth Argyle Ladies Football Club too. 
 
Toppert is coming to the Raiders with a fantastic reputation, established playing in the NBA Development League, New Zealand, Portugal and Germany. But Toppert's wife, Brittany, who will be accompanying Cody to Plymouth, comes with an even more impressive resume in football, having represented the USA national Under-21 side, and playing with the Boston Breakers in the WPS.
 
"When I spoke to Cody at the start of the recruiting process," said Raiders Coach Gavin Love, "he mentioned that he'd really like to go somewhere that his wife could play football at the same time. Naturally, Plymouth Argyle Ladies was my first thought and after having spoken with their Manager, Rhys Sullivan and hearing how enthusiastic he was about having her play, I was excited to tell Cody how welcome they'd both be in Plymouth!
 
"It's great that while signing a fantastic basketball player, we've also been able to help Argyle Ladies at the same time, she's going to be a major asset for them."
 
Along with Cody, Brittany comes from Albuquerque in New Mexico and graduated from Arizona State University with a fantastic reputation, finishing in the top four all time list in goals, game winners, assists and points. Following University, she went on to play at the Boston Breakers alongside England star Kelly Smith in the Women's Professional Soccer league (WPS).
 
Rhys Sullivan, Plymouth Argyle manager said: "Brittany is a vastly experienced player having played for Arizona State - a Division One school in women's soccer in the USA. She was also part of the USA Under-21 side as well as spending some time training and playing with top players such as Kelly Smith at the Boston Breakers.
 
"Brittany's arrival, combined with the return of England Under-23 central defender Jemma Rose and former club captain Katie Middleton from Premiership side Bristol Academy, will make us an extremely powerful and experienced team full of quality that will undoubtedly be making a serious title challenge for promotion to the national league."
 
"I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to be apart of the Plymouth Argyle next season," said Brittany. "I can't wait to get to Plymouth and begin training for the upcoming season. Everything I have heard about the city, the community and club is wonderful and I look forward to being a part of a special season.
 
"Football is my passion and to have opportunity to play in the country known for the best football in the world is truly a blessing. I hope to help the club to the top of the table and beyond."
 
Sullivan added: "Brittany is a left footed midfielder who can play either centrally or wide left which adds real quality to an all ready quality midfield unit. Everyone at the club is extremely excited for her to arrive and begin working with her."
