TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama head soccer coach Todd Bramble announced the signing of Beatrice Sesu. The Ghana National Team member is now the 10th player set to join the Crimson Tide for the 2013 season.
"We are excited to announce Beatrice Sesu," Bramble said. "She was the captain of the U-17 team that competed in the World Cup and we really got to know her when that U-17 team came to Tuscaloosa three years ago. She has plenty of international experience and is clearly a really talented player. We are lucky to be adding Beatrice to our team and I think she is going to have a wonderful experience coming over here."
Sesu comes all the way to Tuscaloosa from Ghana where she has been a part of the national youth system and is now a member of the national team.
Sesu first made the national pool at the U-17 level where she played at the All-African Games and helped her nation to a second place finish. Later she helped lead Ghana to the U-20 World Cup.
"Beatrice is not just a good soccer player but also a good person, humble, respectful and most importantly very hard working," Ghana U-20 National Team coach Robert Sackey said. "What is great about Beatrice Sesu is she can play multiple positions and is always ready to do what will help the team. I'm very confident she will be a great asset to the program."
At the U-20 World Cup, Sesu started in all three matches for Ghana, including a matchup against the United States. Sesu played every minute of all three games at the midfield in Japan. She also played every minute of the U-17 World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago.
