ATHENS, Ga. --- After recently completing her Georgia career, soccer goalkeeper Ashley Baker has signed to play with Lincoln Ladies FC of the FA Women's Super League (FA-WSL) - the highest level of women's football in England.
Baker - who was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire, England and grew up in Lilburn - just wrapped up her redshirt senior season and third year as Georgia's starter, ending her tenure with the fourth-most saves in program history with 305.
Her 2012 campaign included a save percentage of 0.830, 112 stops, and five shutouts for the Bulldogs in 19 appearances.
Baker played for England in the U-20 Women's World Cup in 2008 and 2010 and is now a fixture for the U-23 squad. She was recently one of 29 players and five goalkeepers called into the five-day camp starting Sun., Nov. 11. The U23 squad is just one step away from the full national team.
