Football Ferns defender Ally Green joins Danish first division club

Football Ferns defender Ally Green has signed with Danish first division club AGF after leaving Norwegian club Valerenga.

AGF’s head of women’s football, Marie Greve, told the club’s website:

AGF’s women strengthen the defense with New Zealand addition.

“Over the winter, we have spent time looking at how we can strengthen the squad as best as possible and we have focused on our left back as one of the central positions in the team and as a place we should strengthen.

“We are therefore very happy that it has been successful in getting Ally Green to AGF. With her experience and quality, she comes in as a good addition to our squad.

“Ally is a strong defensive player with lots of power, who can play with both legs and can therefore be used in both back positions.

“She is characterized by having an enormous drive and a large running schedule, which fits well into our culture, where hard work is absolutely essential for us to achieve the good performances over the spring.”

AGF Fodbold Women; commonly known as AGF, arel based in Aarhus, Jutland, and play in the Danish top-division Elitedivisionen.

The club was formed in March 2020, when three clubs — VSK Aarhus, IF Lyseng and Aarhus Gymnastikforening — decided to merge to form a women’s team capable of playing in the top tier.
