Cowart joins Serbian squad

Jessika is a standard representative of the Philippines.

Another national women’s football team member has decided to take her talents abroad.

Filipinas defender Jessika Cowart recently inked a deal with powerhouse ŽFK Spartak Subotica in the Serbian Women’s Super League.

It will be Cowart’s third pro club since joining Caykur Rizespor in Turkey and California Storm in the United States.

“Jessika Cowart is the new reinforcement of the Serbian champion (club). Jessika is a standard representative of the Philippines,” the club said in a statement.

Cowart, one of the recent recruits of head coach Alen Stajcic, became one of the team’s main defenders and was a vital cog on the country’s historic championship run in the AFF Women’s Championship in July.

She debuted for the Filipinas in their exhibition match against Ireland in June and scored her first international goal in their 3-0 win against Thailand in the AFF final match.

Spartak Subotica is considered as one of the strongest teams in Europe, having won 12 Serbian League crowns and seven Serbian Cup titles since 2010.

It is also a fierce competitor in the prestigious UEFA Women’s Champions League and has been competing for 11 straight seasons.

Interestingly, Cowart will be the second Filipina booter to actively play in Serbia as Filipinas striker Quinley Quezada recently joined Red Star Belgrade.
