Chicago Signs Erin Yenney as National Team Replacement Player

CHICAGO – The Red Stars have signed former University of Louisville midfielder Erin Yenney as a National Team Replacement player, replacing Sam Kerr. She will join the rest of the Red Stars in Houston when they take on the Dash this Sunday for opening weekend.
