The South Sudan Football Association (SSFA) has announced Shilene Booysen as the new Senior Women’s Head Coach on a two-year contract that will see her take charge of the Bright Starlets till 2023.
Shilene previously worked as an Assistant Coach of Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League in America.
Most recently she has been working as an Assistant Coach for the South African Senior Women’s National Team.
Speaking about her new appointment, Shilene remarked “When I saw what South Sudan was doing in terms of women’s football and the strategy that the SSFA has put in place, and what they have done since putting it in place, everything that they have done made me excited and since then I have always wanted to be a part of something like this. This is exactly where I want to be, this is exactly what I want to do, and I want to be a part of something bigger and for me, South Sudan football and the Federation plans represent something bigger.’’
South Sudan is one of the youngest African countries after it secedes from Sudan.
Not a big name in women’s football but the acquisition of Shilene can help the national team develop in the long run.
