PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Thorns have announced the signing of forward Tiffany Weimer for the remainder of the 2013 NWSL season, pending league approval and the receipt of Weimer’s International Transfer Certificate. Per league and team rules, terms were not disclosed.
Weimer, 29, most recently played for Fortuna Hjørring of the Danish Elitedivisionen where she tallied a team-leading 14 goals and helped lead her team to second place finishes in both the Elitedivisionen, Danish Super Cup and reached the Round of 16 in the recently-completed UEFA Women’s Champion’s League.
“Tiffany Weimer is a seasoned professional,” head coach Cindy Parlow Cone said. “She will bring another level of sophistication to our attack as she can play anywhere in the midfield and as a forward.”
Before heading to Denmark, Weimer appeared for the Vancouver Whitecaps Women of the W-League, where she netted seven goals and four assists.
On the national team level, Weimer has appeared for the U21s from 2004-2007 and earned senior team callups in January 2007 and February 2008.
Drafted by FC Gold Pride of Women’s Professional Soccer in 2009, Weimer made 15 appearance, scoring one goal and assisting on three.
Weimer has also appeared for professional teams in Brazil, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.
Collegiately, she was a three-time NSCAA All-American, scoring 91 goals in 97 matches for Penn State from 2001-2005, setting a NCAA record by scoring goals in 17 consecutive matches, a record also held by current Thorns teammate Christine Sinclair.
Weimer’s signing puts the Thorns at the NWSL-mandated roster limit of 20.
