Breakers announce 2011 roster

WESTWOOD, Mass. – WPS All-Stars Kelly Smith, Alex Scott, and Leslie Osborne are among 14 players returning to Boston for the 2011 WPS season, which kicks off on April 9th between the Breakers and Atlanta Beat in Kennesaw, GA.

The Breakers, who started the offseason earlier this month, currently have 23 players on their roster. WPS allows a maximum of 24 rostered players per club.

Perhaps the most glaring aspect of the 23-player list is the absence of WPS legend Kristine Lilly, who retired during the offseason. In fact,the 2011 season will mark the first time in team history that Lilly, who played for the Breakers during the WUSA and WPS eras, will not be on the roster. Her number 13 will be retired during halftime of the Breakers’ May 22nd match against the Philadelphia Independence.

Here is the Breakers 2011 roster:

M Jordan Angeli
D Liz Bogus
M Leah Blayney
D Rachel Buehler
