The Kansas City Current have announced their roster heading into the 2023 NWSL Season. In addition to the previously signed players, the Current have bolstered the roster by signing three picks from the 2023 NWSL Draft.
Defender Gabrielle Robinson was chosen in the second round (#15 overall), and has been signed through 2023 with an option for 2024. Jordan Silkowitz was also taken in the second-round pick (#18 overall) and is signed through 2024. Midfielder and Kansas City area native Rylan Childers (fourth round, #42 overall) is signed through the 2023 season.
“We have been impressed with what all three players have done so far in the preseason,” said general manager Camille Ashton said via press release. “They are a great fit culturally and we are excited to see how they continue to develop in KC.”
The full Kansas City Current roster that will begin the 2023 season features 24 players, including 14 from the 2022 roster that advanced to the NWSL Championship match in Oct. Midfielders Claire Lavogez, Sam Mewis, and defender Mallory Weber remain on the Season Ending Injury (SEI) list from last season, although their status is subject to change as their recovery progresses.
