– signs with Danish side Boldklubben 1921 Nykobing Falster
Guyana Women’s National Team player, ‘Lady Jag’ Mariam El-Masri has joined Danish 1. Division side, Boldklubben 1921 Nykøbing Falster.
The Scarborough, Ontario native, who won the 2012 Ontario Women Soccer League with Gursikh Sabha United, arrived in Denmark on March 21st, immediately got into task by scoring the winner in her unofficial debut against BK Skjold reserves in a 1-0 win 3 days later.
The OCAA Soccer Athlete of the Week was thrilled over her move to Danish football.
“This move has been a good experience for me so far. The atmosphere is so different and it is a refreshing experience playing in wintry conditions. Scoring the lone goal on my unofficial debut was a great way to show the team what I could deliver. You could not tell that the team is currently lying at the bottom of the table because my teammates can move and pass the ball so well.
My target for this season is to help my team achieve at least a mid-table placing. I will like to thank my representatives, Trebol Sports International for making this European dream come true!”
Mariam is the younger sister of S-League side, Courts Young Lions star, Sherif El-Masri. Sherif was happy over her sister’s European adventure, “It will be a good break for her. It’s something she is gifted in and loves doing. I am confident she can get far from here.”
The gifted forward has scored four goals in 10 appearances for the ‘Lady Jags’ and helped Guyana qualify for the CONCACAF Women’s Finals that was played in Cancun, Mexico in 2010 where she scored against the mighty Mexicans in that memorable 7-2 loss to the host team.
The Guyanese team, making their debut at that level, was a favourite of the Mexican crowd. Mariam will make her official debut in an away game against Sønderjysk E on 6th April.
