Sky Blue FC made English forward Leah Galton the no. 13 overall pick in the 2016 NWSL College Draft. The 2015 MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist registered 122 points while at Hofstra University, a program record. Her 48 goals were second most in school history, and the 26 assists on her college resume are tied for most ever in the Pride record books. A native of Harrogate, England, Galton earned Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Year accolades for three consecutive years, the only player in CAA history to do so.
During her rookie 2016 campaign, Galton registered three goals and four assists, with the four assists equaling a team-high (Taylor Lytle). After missing the start of the NWSL season while finishing school at Hofstra University, Galton made 10 starts over 14 appearances.
