“I am so excited to continue my career with Angel City,” said Leroux in a statement. “Los Angeles has truly become home for me and my family and I wouldn’t want to play anywhere else. The community the club has built is incredible and I look forward to playing many more games in front of the best fans in the NWSL.”
“We are so happy that Sydney is continuing her tenure with Angel City,” said ACFC General Manager Angela Hucles Mangano in a statement. “The passionate way she plays brings such an exciting element to our squad, in addition to her veteran leadership. She leaves everything out on the field every time she plays, in a way that is all Syd. There is no one like her and we are lucky that she is part of our team.”
Leroux joined the club halfway through 2022 via trade with Orlando Pride. Since joining, Leroux has appeared in 19 total matches, earning three goals in 1,054 minutes, which boosted her career total to 40 goals in 133 total matches. Prior to joining the club, Leroux spent four years with the Pride. She has also played for Kansas City, Western New York, Seattle, and Boston in her 11 years of NWSL experience. That experience will be much needed in the coming weeks, as the club aim to exercise their option on extending the season by a few more matches.
