Ashly Martinez made an immediate impact with FC Tucson.
The 19-year-old from Coahuila, Mexico, scored in her very first match with the club – lifting FC Tucson to a 1-0 win at El Paso Surf. Martinez finished with a team-high two goals and added an assist. She was selected as FC Tucson’s 2022 Offensive Player of the Year.
Martinez joined FC Tucson after having been selected to the U15 and U17 Mexico National Team, and representing her country in the CONCACAF tournament in Orlando, Florida.
The midfielder played for Club Santos Laguna in LIGA BBVA MX Femenil during its 2019-20 Apertura season, scoring three goals in 11 appearances. Injury sidelined her for the ensuing Clausura, but she bounced back strongly with her performance in Tucson.
