Meet Vicky Bruce

Vicky Bruce is the first signing in club history ahead of the 2024/25 USL Super League season, pending league and federation approval. The defender returns home to the Carolinas after playing professional soccer abroad for seven years in Australia and Europe.

“From the beginning, we have talked about building a club by the Carolinas, for the Carolinas and connecting with the community in everything we do,” Head Coach Philip Poole explained. “To bring Vicky back to the Carolinas is such an exciting moment for everyone connected to the club. Vicky is a leader on and off the field and will be visible in our community. I am thrilled to announce Vicky and what it means for her and the young girls playing soccer in the Carolinas.”

A proven champion, Bruce returns to the States and her hometown to compete with Carolina Ascent FC. Bruce spent the 2023/24 season playing for the Western Sydney Wanderers in the Australian A-League, starting all 22 matches and recording three goals in the campaign.

Growing up in Cornelius, North Carolina, Bruce played club soccer for Charlotte Soccer Academy. In 2020, Bruce was inducted into the inaugural Cannon High School Athletics Hall of Fame. She was a member of the North Carolina ODP program from 2006-10 and was named to ODP Region III teams for international trips in 2009 and 2010 while captaining the North Carolina ODP team each of those years. In 2008, Bruce participated in U14 U.S. Youth National Team Nike Friendlies.
