Ghana’s Sherifatu Sumaila joins LA Galaxy OC

Former Black Maidens and Princesses striker Sherifatu Sumaila has been signed by America’s United Women’s Soccer (UWS) side LA Galaxy Orange County.

LA Galaxy OC announced the Ghana international as one of 11 initial signings for their inaugural UWS Women’s team.

Sherifatu is enrolled at the University of Maine, Ft. Kent and is expected to capitalize on the United Women’s Soccer, which was formed in late 2015 to fill the gap in the development of the female soccer player between the collegiate game and the professional & international game, to stay competitive.

The league is played in the summer – form May until July end.

Sherifatu Sumaila, 23, was a member of the Black Maidens squad which won bronze at the U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2012. She moved up the ranks in 2014 where she also represented Ghana at the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

She previously played for Lepo Ladies in her homeland.
