South sign New Zealand attacker Tayla Christensen

South Melbourne FC would like to announce the signing of New Zealand attacker Tayla Christensen for the 2023 NPLW Victoria Season.

Christensen adds significant bite to South’s attacking third with an ability to play in any role across both attack and midfield.

She joins us from Viajes InterRías in Spain, with previous experience at FC Malaga City, TCU University in the United States and a representative of the 2012, 2014 and 2016 New Zealand Youth squads that made it to the World Cup.

Tayla brings added experience and a proven goalscorer alongside an already potent attacking South attack.

Speaking to SMFC Media, Senior Coach George Georgiadis was elated with his new international signing. “Tayla compliments our squad with her ability across many different positions as well as her experience in both the American College System and throughout playing in Spain. She’s quick, direct and can score goals which is what we want to see.

We wish Tayla all the best in 2023 and welcome her officially to the SMFC Family.
