Three local players have committed to the Simon Fraser University Clan women’s soccer team for 2014.

Sisters Priya and Ruby Sandhu are graduates of Tamanawis Secondary, and will be joined at Simon Fraser by North Surrey Secondary graduate Mikela Fong.

Priya Sandhu is a goaltender, and was called “the most important addition” to the team by head coach Annie Hamel.

“Being able to sign a national team experienced goalkeeper is not an easy task and we are lucky she chose us,” said Hamel. “She will not only keep us in games, she will no doubt help us win some.”

The Sandhu sisters also played with the Whitecaps youth program, with Ruby playing centre back.

“Her experience playing with Priya with the Whitecaps program will be critical to our back line,” said Hamel. “Ruby’s biggest asset is her ability to connect passes, find the open player and deliver the ball exactly where it needs to be.”

Fong, a defender, played for Coastal FC.
