Becky Angus returning to Norway
« on: November 15, 2011, 08:53:29 AM »
Rebecca Angus has signed to play for Norwegian club Vålerenga of Oslo in the 2012 season after a year with Jitex in Sweden.

In four seasons 2007-2010 Angus, from Middlesbrough, played 96 matches and scored 44 goals for Kolbotn, another Oslo club.  "Vålerenga has arranged a package for me on and off the field, both as a player and also thinking of a future career.  I am looking forward to it", said the 26-year-old, who has visited her new club already.

Vålerenga is very happy to have the English-born attacker in place so soon after the end of the season.  "Becky has humour, is a hard-working professional and has a lot of experience.  She wants to make a mark in the Toppserien again, which we like.  We also like her acceptance of the arrangement on and off the pitch, a combination which is an important part of our philosophy as a top women's football club", said Vålerenga's director Runar Kvernen.

Vålerenga's chief trainer Cecilie Berg-Hansen is also pleased that Becky has chosen her club.  "We know each other from Kolbotn.  We know very well what Becky stands for.  She is a strong dueller, can play in several attacking positions and scores goals regularly.  She always works hard for the team and her fellow players, as English players do.  She will be a clear reinforcement for us, on and off the pitch", said Berg-Hansen on Vålerenga's first new signing after promotion to the Toppserien.
