Falköping and Qbik finds reinforcements overseas

Falköpings KIK has announced that they have signed Jill Oakes and Erin Ramsey, transfer cleared for both of them earlier this week.
Jill Oakes was on trial with Falköping this spring and was offered a contract, but opted to play for Vancouver Whitecaps in the American W-league instead. The W-league season is now finished and Oakes will continue her 2007 season in Falköping. Oakes, who has one cap for the full USA national team, is a midfielder and was part of the winning US teams at the 2002 FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship and the 2005 U-21 Nordic Cup.
Erin Ramsey is a defender, who has appeared once for the Canadian national team. She has played with Oakes in Vancouver this last season.

Qbik has arranged with Irish national team forward Michelle O´Brien to join the team for the last four matches after the World Cup. O'Brien played in the American W-league with the Long Island Rough Riders and comes to Qbik on a recommendation from Qbik goalkeeper Maria Yatrakis, who has played with O'Brien. "It's a bit of a long-shot", says Qbik coach Janne Jansson, "but we really need a good forward".
