From NORRKÖPING, SVERIGE
Club: IFK Norrköping
MY CATO started working with Five 9 in September 2018. At that time she was the only one of our players who hadn´t been to any national team camps. She also had a rough season behind her, where she never really got the chance from her coaches.
Fast forward one year and she is one of our most accomplished players. National team caps, State Cup Champion (MVP in the final) and starting every game for her IFK Norrköping.
Her 2019 season was so great that teams from both Elitettan and Allsvenskan lined up to try to get her to their team.
After tryouts and lots of thinking, My decided that Kvarnsvedens IK was going to be the lucky team. Meaning, she´s switching both cities and schools to continue her soccer career in Elitettan 2020!
In november 2018 was was selected to her first national team camp at Bosön. The national team scouts selected her to the camp after seeing her at the group stage of the State Cup, where she had an outstanding performance.
After several camps with the U17´s, she was finally selected to compete for Sweden with the U18´s in a 3 nation tournament against Iceland and Norway.
Her debut came against Iceland on the 28th of August. She got subbed in with 30 minutes left to play, and assisted a goal right away.
Sweden won 3-1.
In the game against Norway she was in the starting lineup and played all 93 minutes.
In June, Five 9 went down to Halmstad to watch Östergötland vs Stockholm in the State Cup final.
My had just had her appendicitis removed and it was unsure whether or not she´d be able to play.
However, not only did she manage to play through the pain - she also made sure her Östergötland won against number 1 seed Stockholm AND was awarded MVP of the Game.
Two other Five 9ers were also major contributers to the win - Sofia Hjern who saved everything that came her way, and Ella Degerstedt who made it impossible for Stockholm to create anything on the left side.
A magical 2019 who ended with a new club: Kvarnsvedens IK. In January 2020 My is moving to Dalarna and Elitettan!
