Malta international striker Rachel Cuschieri will be joining Apollon Ladies FC in Cyprus following a successful trial with the club.
Cuschieri was a key player for Birkirkara, helping them to win the championship and the Knock-Out on various occasions. She is also a key member of the women’s national team.
Apollon Ladies FC were founded in 2007 and they soon established themselves as the top team in Cyprus. In fact, since 2009, they won six consecutive championships. They also won the Cup six times and the Super Cup four times. In Europe, they managed to reach the Round of 32 in the UEFA Women’s Champions League over the past four years.
In the qualifying round of the UEFA Women’s Champions League which will be held next month, Apollon will be playing in a group together with Gintra of Lithuania, KI of Iceland and KS Vllaznia of Albania.
