AFC Ann Arbor are pleased to announce the addition of midfielder, Devyn Brough to the inaugural women’s squad. The Commerce Township native not only brings her collegiate experience to The Mighty Oak but having previously played in the United Women’s Soccer national league will prove to be valuable for the first-year side.
Brough started her collegiate career at Auburn University where she was named Academic All-SEC and appeared in 11 games off the bench amassing 73 minutes of play and made an appearance in the NCAA Tournament vs. South Alabama, UConn, and Florida. After her freshman year, Brough transferred back to Michigan to continue her collegiate track with Central Michigan University. Her first season with CMU she played six games with one start missing the remainder of the season with an injury. Even with a shorter season Brough scored 2 goals and totaled five shots (3 on goal).
After hard work and training to get back on the field after her injury, Brough junior year appeared in 14 games making six starts recording one shot on goal her junior year.
A product of the Michigan Jaguars Youth Club, Brough is looking forward to playing for her former coach Barry Scott and a coach she used to play against Andy Pritchard. Brough said, “Andy and Barry are great competitors and work well together.”
Look for Brough to make an immediate impact in the middle of the pitch, helping advance the ball into the final third while creating opportunities for her and her teammates. With previous experience in the UWS, in addition to her tenacity and competitive drive as an elite player, Brough will surely be a name to remember this season.
The midfielder is excited for the inaugural campaign adding, “I’m ready to get at it and show other teams what The Mighty Oak can do!”
