Greek club signs Joy Bokiri from Bayelsa Queens


Elpides Karditsas, a club in the Greek Women’s topflight league, have completed the signing of Bayelsa Queens captain, Joy Bokiri.

Following a successful medical on Tuesday, the Nigeria U20 international put pen to paper on a one year deal.

The 18-year-old who recently earned a call up ahead of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers, shared photos on her Facebook.

Bokiri has been given the number 12 Jersey at her new club.

The midfielder was one of the top performers for Bayelsa Queens in the regular season of the Nigeria Women Premier League as they pipped defending champions Rivers Angels to top spot in Group A. The Yenegoa-based side would have to do without her in the NWPL Super Four scheduled for next month.

Meanwhile Elpides Karditsas finished as runners-up in the 2016/17 Greek Women’s League season that ended in May.
