Newcomers Jitex signs Sweden U21 players

Jitex, just promoted to Damallsvenskan from 1st division, has signed two players with experience from Sweden's U21 and other youth natiuonal teams; Amelie Rybeck from the 1st division side Holmalund and Emma Herbring from KIF Örebro. Herbring's move was partly motivated by her boyfriend Ola Toivonen (also a U21 player) being signed by the men's premier league side Örgryte. Örgryte is like Jitex in the Göteborg area.

Jitex is one of the pioneer Swedish women's football clubs, founded 1971, won 6 Swedish championships and had players like Pia Sundhage in the 70's and 80's. They got relegated from Damallsvenskan 1997 and even folded operations 2001. But the club restarted the year after and is now back in the highest division.
