Nick Previously Played Two Seasons in New Jersey with Sky Blue FC
Tinton Falls, N.J. (Tuesday, March 29, 2016) – Sky Blue FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) made official on Tuesday that the club has signed midfielder Ashley Nick, who returns to the New Jersey side after spending two previous seasons with the team in 2013 and 2014.
“We are very excited to bring Ashley back to New Jersey,” said Christy Holly, Sky Blue FC head coach. “She was very keen to rejoin Sky Blue FC, which is a prerequisite for any player who will represent our club. She will be a tremendous asset for us and will provide our team with a great amount of experience and leadership in the midfield.”
Nick, 28, returns to Sky Blue FC after splitting the 2015 NWSL season with the Houston Dash and Western New York Flash, making nine total starts over 16 appearances while registering one assist.

Throughout her playing career, championship is a word that has been synonymous with Nick. Collegiately, she captained the University of Southern California to the 2007 NCAA College Cup championship, receiving All-America accolades. She was also a member of the 2013 USL W-League champion Pali Blues Soccer Club, where she was named the championship most valuable player. Internationally, she has played for Russian club FC Zorky, helped FC Twente win the Dutch Vrouwen Eredivisie championship and was named the Biggest Impact Player for Arna Bjørnar after leading the team to a bronze medal in the Norwegian Toppserien league.
