Sierra Leone Sports: Matta Conteh to try out for Washington Spirits in US

Sierra Leone national women’s football captain, Matta Conteh, will be heading to the U.S. for trial with the Washington Spirit Soccer Club.
Washington Spirit is an American professional soccer club located in Germantown, Maryland that participated in the National Women’s Soccer league (NWSL).
The Premier AC playmaker will be accompanied to the USA by Coach Suleiman Sully Hamid who has worked very hard to ensure the young lady played top class football abroad before the end of this month.
Conteh’s trial with the America-based club was confirmed with an official invite sent to her representative, Hamid, a week ago after all necessary documents that have to do with the player meets the required standard.
Conteh is looking forward to get a successful trial spell that will impress the technical team of Washington Spirit to offer her a professional contact at the club.
Conteh asserted that the most important thing is to make Coach Sully proud by making use of the opportunity, which comes once in a while for female players.
“I’m so excited; it’s certainly an awesome opportunity for me. I appreciated the efforts of Coach Sully who worked so hard to offer me chance of training with top rated players in USA”.
“I will be going there with the notion of impressing those that will be in charge of the trails because I believe if I went through it successfully, the door will open for my colleagues back home,” she cited.
Coach Suleiman Sully Hamid believes Conteh has the capabilities of succeeding based on her tactical skills and physical ability.
The Coach continued that Conteh will be the flagship of Sierra Leone Women’s football in America, so she needs to do her utmost best to conquer the trial and pave way for more girls.
“I will prepare her for some weeks when we arrive in America, so that when the time comes for her trials there will be no if/but about her performance. But from what I had seen, she is very quick on the ball, physical and intelligent,” the Coach commented.
Matta Conteh is one of the most consistent female footballers the county can boast of at the moment. She is one of the best players in the country.
