USA-based Fiji women’s football striker Trina Davis has become the first professional women’s footballer.
Davis has officially signed with an Israel Club ‘ASA Tel Aviv’ for this year.
The 19-year-old was part of the Fiji women’s national squad in 2018 during the OFC Women’s Nations Cup Qualifier that was held in Lautoka.
In an interview with former national rep Ronald Chaudhary, Davis accredited her professional career to former national coach Christophe Gamel.
Gamel had reached out to her in January and to ask if she was interested to play professionally in Israel.
In her Facebook post, she said that she was proud to sign her professional contract.
After her debut for the Fijian National side, the US-born signed up with Gambling State Tigers.
ASA Tel Aviv University SC is currently third in the 2020/2021 Season of the Israeli Women’s Premier League.
Last week the club won the Israeli Women’s Cup quarter-finals.
Meanwhile, the Vodafone Premier League continues next week with two matches on Saturday, Labasa and Ba at 1.30 pm at Subrail Park and Nadroga hosting Nadi at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka at 5 pm.
Two games will also be played on Sunday at 3 pm, Suva hosts Rewa at the ANZ Stadium while Lautoka faces Navua at Churchill Park.
