The past two months of preseason have been quite strenuous, but a lot of fun. So far it has been exciting getting to know my teammates and seeing what qualities they each bring to the team. This Sunday we play our season opener against Frankfurt in Frankfurt. Away games are the most difficult to play in, but I am excited for the challenge and to bring a bit of my Canadian swag onto the pitch. Last week my team finished our preseason strong, playing two games against two different Dutch teams and winning both games 3-0. I was able to contribute two goals out of the six we scored during the week. It’s never easy adjusting to a new team right away as a foreigner, but it has been a pretty smooth transition improving every week.
Check out our team video in the link below made by the Frauen-Bundesliga media team on Media Day last week.
Outside of soccer, my mom and sister were able to spend a solid two weeks with me in Germany and we had an amazing time. We were able to explore the beautiful cities; Köln, Düsseldorf, Duisburg and Centraal Amsterdam. Time absolutely flew by with them, but they made August go by fast and now I am ready for season! Below are some good times spent with my family and friends the past two weeks.
Stay tuned next week to catch up with the results from this weekends Frauen Bundesliga matches. Go Gladbach!
