Grace Norbury secures a full-ride scholarship to study and compete at Alabama State University.

We are super excited to announce that our Game-Changer prospect Grace Norbury has officially committed to NCAA Division 1 Alabama State University Women's Soccer team on a 'Full-Ride' US College Soccer Scholarship. Grace represented Box Hill United in the Women’s Victorian National Premier League (NPLW) and was previously a key member of the Australian Schoolgirls squad that won the 2018 Social Winter Cup in Los Angeles. While in America, she also represented North Texas WPSL Team South Star FC. Underpinned by high game intelligence and her ability to read the game, Grace’s natural playing position is a No.6 (CDM) but her versatility and tactical IQ enables her to also easily play in a No.8 role (CM). Grace is a consistent and hardworking midfielder with a strong team-oriented mindset. One of her key strengths is composure on the ball as she rarely makes mistakes in possession and recycles the ball effortlessly. Coupled with her tactical awareness, pace and physical strength, she has huge potential and will be a real impact player for Alabama State University. We are thrilled for Grace and her family and eagerly await to see how her US college story unfolds over the next few years. Go Grace!
