Gilliland Joins Chicago Teammate in Australia

Best XI defender on loan to Newcastle

CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Stars announced today that defender Arin Gilliland will be on loan to Newcastle Jets FC of the Australian W-League during the National Women’s Soccer League offseason.

The top pick for Chicago in the 2015 NWSL College Draft, Gilliland immediately made a name for herself in the NWSL, including being the only rookie defender named to the NWSL Second XI. In 2016, Gilliland stepped up her game to a whole new level and was honored as a finalist for Defender of the Year and named to the NWSL Best XI.

After having just finished her first call-up to the U.S. Women’s National Team camp, Gilliland has joined Newcastle for her first stint abroad.

Gilliland will return to the Chicago Red Stars prior to the start of the 2017 NWSL season.
