We are proud to share that Suburban FC’s Mya Archibald has been selected for the U-17 Canadian Women's National Team!
Mya will be heading to Spain with her new teammates to take part in the Costa Calisa MIMA Cup in San Pedro del Pinatar. The U-17s are participating in the tournament as preparation for the 2022 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship with the objective of qualifying for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which takes place in India later this year!
Mya has been a stand-out for Suburban throughout her years with the Club. Mya has been a part of our Club since she first got involved in soccer. The young right-back has excelled over the last couple of years earning opportunities with the Nova Scotia Canada Games, Whitecaps and REX programs.
Suburban FC Girls Technical Director, Graham Ashworth had this to say about Mya getting the opportunity to represent Canada:
“Mya is a top player and very deserving of this opportunity. We can’t wait to watch her journey moving forward. We are excited to watch one of Suburban’s very own wear the Canadian jersey. She [Mya] is competitive in everything she does, we admire that about her. Mya’s athleticism and work ethic is second to none”.
Mya joins the list of recent Suburban FC player success stories. Since amalgamating in 2019,
Suburban FC has seen multiple players move on to the next stage of the player development pathway. This includes the professional & USPORTS/NCAA levels. Most notable; Scott Firth (HFX Wanderers), Sierra Gallant (Vancouver Whitecaps FC Girls Elite) & Luke Green (HFX Wanderers / Calgary Foothills).
Suburban FC congratulates & wishes Mya the best of luck & we look forward to watching her represent Canada on the National stage!
