Valpo soccer head coach John Marovich announced today the Beacons have added two more players to their squad in advance of the fall 2023 campaign. Aubrey Ramey has enrolled at Valpo for the spring semester after playing the last three seasons at DePaul, while England native Daisy Boardman will come across the pond to join the program this coming fall as a freshman.
Aubrey Ramey – 5’7” – MF – Jacksonville, Fla. – The Bolles School – DePaul – Florida Elite Soccer Academy
Ramey joins the Beacons after playing the last three seasons in the Big East for DePaul. Ramey appeared in a total of 22 matches for the Blue Demons over her three years and saw her most extensive action in 2022, when she made eight starts out of her 13 appearances and played a total of 738 minutes. A two-time Big East All-Academic Team member, Ramey will have two seasons of eligibility remaining at Valpo.
Ramey played her prep soccer at The Bolles School, helping her side to a trio of Florida Class 2A state titles. She was a Florida All-Star and All-First Coast Team member as a senior. With her club team, Ramey was a three-time national qualifier.
Ramey on why she chose Valpo: “I chose Valpo for its sense of community and competitive environment. I am so excited to call Valpo home!”
Marovich on Ramey: “Aubrey is an athletic player who brings Big East playing experience in both attacking and defensive roles. She is a person of high character and fit into our team environment immediately. Aubrey has a comfort on the ball which leads to her ability to connect passes. We are excited to have her on campus during this spring semester.”
Daisy Boardman – 5’6” – D – Warrington, England – Liverpool Academy
Boardman has been in the Liverpool system for eight years. Playing for the Liverpool U21s in the FA WSL Academy League this year, she has made 12 appearances and scored a pair of goals. Boardman will become the first player from England in program history.
Marovich on Boardman: “Daisy has many qualities, but her ability to read the game, her knowledge in how to create combination play and her passing range are a few that stand out. Her experience playing with the Liverpool U21 Academy team in the UK adds additional experience to our 2023 fall squad. Daisy can play in multiple positions, but primarily has seen action at the outside back or center back positions.”
