ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 5, 2023) — The Orlando Pride and goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse have agreed to a new contract through the 2025 season, it was announced today. Moorhouse has six clean sheets in the 2023 season, breaking the Pride’s record for most clean sheets in a single season with the win over Angel City FC on Monday.
“Anna has quietly put together a consistent and impressive season. Her presence between the posts is felt across our backline and her leadership has been a major contributor to our group’s defensive organization,” VP of Soccer Operations and General Manager Haley Carter said. “We have an extremely competitive goalkeeper corps who continue to push and support each other, and we are excited for Anna to remain at the forefront of that. We are happy for her to extend her playing career with us and are confident she will continue to compete day in and day out.”
“I’m grateful for the Club’s belief in me,” Moorhouse said of her new deal. “The Club has great ambition for the future and I’m happy to be a part of that for the next two years. I’m excited to continue building our culture within the team and to keep striving to bring a championship to the community of Orlando.”
