Canadians abroad

Recommended Posts

Sarah Robins signed with Aland utd in Finland yesterday.

They may play in Finland but the Åland Islands are actually an independent country of about 25,000 people. And that club site is in Swedish and not Finnish. She's probably in Mariehamm which is halfway between Stockholm and Turku at the opening of the Gulf of Bothia. She'll be piling up the ferry miles this year.

Erin Mcnulty switched teams but stayed in Norway's toppserien with Arna Bjornar

Allysha Chapman switched to damallsvenskan club Eskilstuna United DFF in Sweden

Justine Bernier re-signed with Klepp in Norway's toppserien

Melissa Busque and Tina Romagnuolo are on cwfootball.net which suggests they are looking for a team abroad as well.

They're not independent. They are an autonomous region, like Catalonia.

Well there you go, been to both and never knew it.

At least McNulty is staying on the West coast and will be at a more stable club. The daughter of the main backer of Avaldsnes moved to Oslo this off-season for life opportunities leaving a question mark over the future of his support (because the team were mostly imported internationals). I'm not sure who the GK coach is at Arna-Bjørnar but whoever it was did a great job with Erika Skarbø before her Nth injury and retirement. They have a great coach and run a strong youth program.
