Trinidad girls dream of Fortuna
Dana Cup strives constantly to ensure the tournament has an international feel. This means there are visits all around the World. Recently the Dana Cup Director Jette Andersen and Alison Leigh Forman from Marketing have been in the Caribbean to add and even more exotic flavour to the tournament.
The interest to participate in the Dana Cup is huge and at the same time there is interest for the supporting club of the Dana Cup - Fortuna Hjørring.
Two long time football players from Trinidad & Tobago are dreaming of lifting their careers with Fortuna Hjørring. The two 26 year old girls - Kamika Forbes (Midfield and Defence) and Rhea Belgrave (Central Defender) spoke with Jette Andersen and Alison Leigh Forman from Dana Cup's marketing, in Trinidad & Tobago when the recent CONCACAF Women's U20 Championship was held.
Both girls have just returned home to Trinidad & Tobago from a college stay in the USA, where they had football as their major and now they feel that the next move could be European football and they would like to be a part of Fortuna in Hjørring.
The Technical Director for Trinidad & Tobagos National Football Teams - Anton Corneal praises both players very highly. If they live up to his recognition, they could be beneficial for Fortuna.
- We have not seen Kamika and Rhea on the field yet, we have just heard of their experiences and talents.
I can see that they could have the opportunity to come and train with us, but we must be careful not to be unrealistic and or to disappoint them.
We will talk more with Kamika, Rhea and Anton Corneal, as he has strong wishes for them to try and play in Denmark in the Danish League.
There is a very good chance for Fortuna and at the new Dana Cup Academy to welcome the Caribbean girls and to give them a chance.
The Dana Cup and Fortuna see the opportunity for a larger partnership with Trinidad & Tobago and also with other parts of the Caribbean.
