Bälinge's Sembrant to join English club
Bälinge's defender Linda Sembrant has agreed to play for the English club Lincoln City Ladies FC. She will join Lincoln after the end of the Swedish season October 29 and stay with the northern English club until the Christmas break.

Lincoln City LFC says that "Linda will be the first of several high-profile signings for the Club over the rest of this season and also next season".
19 year old Sembrant has been a member of the starting 11 for Bälinge the entire Damallsvenskan season, mostly as a defensive midfielder.
