Noelle Maritz is not your typical defender.
While she’s willing to get stuck in and do the dirty work in defence, she’s also gifted in possession and enjoys pushing forward to support the midfield and attack.
“I’m a defender and I love to get involved with tackling, duels and winning the ball back,” Maritz told Arsenal Digital. “But I also love to be up front sometimes! I’m calm on the ball and I like to play possession football, but I really enjoy the offensive part too.”
“I’m really, really looking forward to [my first training session now]. I honestly can’t wait to get started and meet the whole team. It will be a new environment and a new place for me, and of course I can’t wait to make my debut.”
