Fletcher seems to be playing on the front line ( either wide or central ) partnered with a tall striker from the Ivory Coast (Josee Nahi)

Impressive effort compiling that list!  It's much appreciated.

I watched Fletcher go head-to-head with Fleming last year in a college game, and she impressed me.  I'm glad to see she's continuing to play somewhere.

Valerie Sanderson has signed with FC Metz according to her university website. The club was relegated to the French 2nd division. I can't see anything official on the club's website.

[ 1 ]  Not entirely certain, but it looks like Pilar Khoury has returned to ASPTT Albi which would give us seven ! Canadians in D1F: Buchanan ( OL ) , Lawrence ( PSG ) Richard ( OM ) , Alidou-D'Anjou ( OM ), Lambert ( Albi ), Khoury ( Albi ) and Roy-Peticlerc ( Albi )

[ 2 ]  I was also pleased to see that both Valerie Sanderson and Marie-Yasmine Alidou-D'anjou have both scored early goals for their respective clubs.

Couldn't find confirmation that Khoury was still at Albi. That's why I didn't mention her because I remember looking if she was still there, but she didn't play the friendly at Barcelona and didn't make the 18 for their 2 league matches this season.
