College team in Bermuda visit
A United States college women's football team will visit Bermuda next month as part of a winter training camp.
Goucher College, a Division III school in Maryland, will bring 26 players and coaches to the Island for practise sessions and to play games against local teams.
Bermuda Football Association and Bermuda Tourism Authority have combined to arrange the trip, with Maurice Lowe, the BFA's technical development director, calling it a “mutually beneficial” arrangement.
“Goucher Women's Soccer is really looking forward to coming back to Bermuda for our team training trip in January,” Tati Korba, Goucher's head coach, said: “We took this same trip years ago and enjoyed the beaches, the playing experience, the hospitality and the culture of Bermuda so much that we chose to come back again.”
