KENNYA “YAYA” CORDNER TO JOIN OSA FC’S WOMEN’S TEAM

Kennya Cordner, who goes by the nickname Yaya, will join OSA FC for it’s 2016 WPSL season.  Kennya, who is a left midfielder and forward, was born in 1988 and has played for both the Seattle Sounders Women and the Seattle Reign. She is a very fast paced player whose best attribute is taking on players and creating opportunities for others. Plus this strong player has been part of the Trinidad & Tobago National Team for 12 years!

I choose OSA because I’ve played  with most of the players on the team, and the chemistry that we have as a team is what you need to win a league. The  environment is welcoming so any player would want to be part of that atmosphere feeling comfortable and playing.

Based on our practices and the work we’ve been doing  on our shape for the upcoming games I have to say I’m pretty confident in the team, and this coming weekend we should be awesome, not saying it’s going to be easy but I can feel that will do great because I believe in myself and my teammates. We are going to have a great season with god’s guidance through out the season.
