Sky Blue FC land Mallory Pugh, add depth at 2020 NWSL College Draft

As if selecting players with potential to contribute immediately out of the draft was not enough for Sky Blue FC, the New Jersey-based club made headlines Thursday when it traded for forward Mallory Pugh.

Pugh was acquired in a trade with the Washington Spirit, which acquired the No. 4, No. 13, and No. 17 picks in the 2020 NWSL draft in the deal. The trade is a statement of intent from Sky Blue, which continues to make big moves after acquiring Midge Purce and McCall Zerboni in trades.
