Ex-St. John's standout Marron to play in Australia
After completing her first season as head coach of the SUNY-Purchase womenís soccer team, former St. Johnís womenís soccer standout Amy Marron has signed a professional contract with Alamein FC of the Playstation 4 National Premier League in Australia.
Marron will be Alamein FCís first international player.
A 2014 graduate of St. Johnís, Marron was a four-year standout for head coach Ian Stone, earning All-Big East honors in three seasons. As a senior in 2013, Marron earned a spot on the All-Big East second team after leading the team in assists (7) and finishing second in goals (4). Marron was also an unquestioned team leader on a squad that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division I Tournament for the first time in program history.
As a junior, Marron played only 12 games after sitting out the start of the season with an injury, but still managed to earn third team conference accolades and team MVP honors.
During her sophomore campaign, Marron was one of three players to start all 19 games for the Red Storm, earning a spot on the All-Big East second team after dishing out three assists.
Marron burst onto the scene as a freshman in 2010, playing in all 18 games and making 17 starts in a season that saw her lead the team in goals (3) and points (7).
After graduating in 2014, Marron spent one season playing professionally in Iceland before returning to St. Johnís as a volunteer assistant coach.
In 2015, the Valhalla, N.Y., native served as the teamís graduate assistant and played an integral role in a group that earned 2015 Big East coaching staff of the year honors. Marron helped the Red Storm claim its first regular season title in program history, as the Johnnies recorded a program-record 15 wins and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years.
