Mighty Warriors and Mutare women’s football club Faith Drive Queens striker Maud Mafurutse left Harare for Iceland where she will undergo a three- month trial period at top club IBV Queens in the capital city Reykjavik.
The talented 18 year-old Maud was spotted playing for the Mighty Warriors against Egypt at the 2016 women’s AFCON finals in Cameroon.
She also represented Zimbabwe during the 2016 African Union Region Five Youth Games in Angola where scout Mike Fola first spotted her playing.
Her proud mother Constance Katsande, cousin to former Warriors and Kaizer Chiefs captain Willard Katsande, was over the moon with the development.
Faith Drive Queens director Nelia Musikavanhu says she is proud of Maud’s achievements.
Maud started playing football at a young age and was inspired by her uncle, Willard, although her mum tried to discourage her and encourage her to focus on her education.
Maud, who made it into the Faith Drive Queens side while still in school, averaged 30 goals a season, which she attributed to her speed and agility.
Her most memorable goal she says was against the Lady Pharaohs of Egypt in the Mighty Warriors colours.
She promised to do her best in the cold European country and inspire other girls to strive to play abroad as professionals and make the most of their careers.
