Nora Abolins heads off to Sweden
Durham United F.A. is pleased to announce that goalkeeper Nora Abolins has signed with QBIK in Sweden for the 2016 season.
The 2015 Women’s League 1 Ontario MVP and Championship winning goalkeeper received many inquiries from teams in Europe this off-season but selected QBIK because of their commitment to excellence, the fact they are one of the very few all-female clubs in Sweden and that they have the ambition to play in the top flight of Swedish Women’s Football in the next couple of years.
“Having the opportunity to play professionally in Sweden is a dream come true! I’m so excited for what this new chapter holds. I’d like to thank Durham United FA for giving me both the opportunity and platform to prepare for this challenge.” says Nora Abolins
“Nora’s leadership, love for the game and attitude towards training and competing was very contagious. She has been outstanding both on and off the field.” said Tony LaFerrera, Head Coach of Durham United FA.
All of us at Durham United Football Alliance would like to wish Nora the very best as she begins the next phase in her professional playing career.
