To commemorate this anniversary, the 2013 WPSL East Conference champions have announced their preliminary roster for the 2014 season which includes 15 of the top collegiate & senior players the Northeast region has to offer.

Alongside the team's first initial signing - University of Notre Dame & U.S. U-20 star Morgan Andrews - are a mix of veteran Mutiny players and new signees from one of the top collegiate programs in the area. Re-joining Andrews from last year's East champion side are returnees highlighted by 2013 All-WPSL selection Sarah Brochu, 2013 WPSL National Championship Best XI honoree Alie Fitzsimmons, 2013 All-WPSL East selection McKenzie Hollenbaugh and leading scorer Tori Sousa.

Leading the way for the new signings are two offensive talents in American International College All-American Sonia Basma and former DC United Women star Mikaela Howell. Roxy Lee-Stewart and Jessica Margaretta are two more members from the #4 nationally-ranked and NCAA DII Final Four participant AIC Yellow Jackets to join New England this summer, alongside their college teammates in Basma and Fitzsimmons.

"In 15 seasons, only the 2008 Mutiny returned more players from the previous season than this this year's team, which is testament to the professional environment instilled by Roy Gurnon and the chemistry & camaraderie of last year's team," said Mutiny Team Owner Joe Ferrara, Jr.. "We have also added some quality depth and being able to utilize local area talent is gratifying. Selecting four players from American International, right here in the Springfield area, is important for us and kudos to coach Matt Johnson for resurrecting the program into a national contender."
