Trinidad and Tobago women’s footballer Ahkella Mollon is in Sweden, where she signed a season-long contract with Kvarsveden IK, her former team.
Mollon signed on March 1 for the team which plays in the Elitettan division, which is the second tier and comprises 12 teams vying for a spot to the top division.
Kvarsveden is home to four Swedish national team players and one European Cup player. Mollon is making her return to the club which signed her in 2003 when she first began playing in Europe.
Also getting a break is Tobago-born T&T national goalkeeper Kamika Forbes who has earned a spot with Boston Breakers College Academy, which is the reserve team of the Boston Breakers professional team which competes in the Women’s Premier Soccer League (WPSL). Forbes was successful after attending the team’s tryouts in Hanover, Massachusetts.
The Breakers began pre-season yesterday. In 2013, Forbes played at the college level for the University of Maine at Fort Kenta, where she led to the Lady Bengals to the USCAA National Championship.
Forbes was named a USCAA women’s soccer 2013 First Team All-American. Her record during the 2013 season was 14-1-1.
Many of the Boston Breakers Reserves are college players, recently-graduated collegiate talent, as well as established players with semi-professional or professional experience.
They will play in the WPSL Reserve League. The Boston Breakers Reserves train with the full Boston Breakers’ Women’s Soccer League team and follow identical playing philosophies, learning to play “the Breakers way.”
“It is a great way for us to see the next group of players coming through the college system, along with us being able to help these players prepare for their fall collegiate seasons,” Breakers general manager Lee Billiard said.
