Namibian women’s football team star Annouscka Kordom says she is ready to get to work after officially signing her first professional contract with the Israeli Premier League club Hapoel Be’er Sheva Women’s Football Club (WFC) on Sunday.
Kordom becomes the first-ever Alumna of the United State of America’s (USA) Corban’s program to secure a pro deal. However, the duration of the Brave Gladiators midfielder’s contract was not disclosed.
“It’s been out there for a while now, but I’m very excited to announce with the most staged photo and cheesiest smile, that I have signed my first ever professional contract with Hapoel Be’er Sheva WFC in the Israeli Women’s Premier League,” said Kordom.
“There are so many people to thank for making this happen, but I unfortunately cannot name everyone. All glory and honour and praise go to the Father Almighty.
“I appreciate all the love and support, it doesn’t go unnoticed. I’m especially thankful for my amazing agent, Andrew Criticos, his agency at Sporting Link and my new club for their belief in my ability.
“It’s been a long and hard road but I’m ready to get to work. I love and appreciate you, folks. Looking forward to this exciting new chapter of my life,” she concluded.
In a statement released, Corban University women’s soccer spoke highly of their former star player Kordom as she moves to Israel, in the city of Be’er Sheva to join one of the top-ranked football clubs in that country.
“Kordom is no stranger to big stages as she compiled an impressive pedigree on the pitch during her time with Corban, earning second-time all-conference accolades in her freshman season, and then back-to-back first-team honours in the two subsequent campaigns.”
The 23-year-old Windhoek-born player recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Sport Management from Corban University in the USA. She also launched the Hope Foundation, a non-profit organisation geared towards the development of women’s grassroots football in Namibia.
