An experienced figure will be in charge of the Swieqi United women’s team as from next season after The Owls announced Dutch Judith Kuipers as their new coach.
Kuipers, who was a player in the top-flight of the Netherlands with the likes of SC Heerenveen and Vv Alkmaar, has penned a one-year deal with the MFA Women’s League club.
The UEFA A license holder started her coaching career at second-tier side Wartburgia before taking charge of SC Heereveen in the Dutch top-tier. Kuipers was also in charge of Sassenheim (second-tier) and Vv Alkmaar (first-tier).
Between February and July 2019, Kuipers was in charge of the Cooks women’s national team, guiding them during the 2019 Pacific Games.
Kuipers will take over from Billy Mock who served as an interim coach following the departure of Serbian Nenad Tomic early in the last campaign.
Swieqi United are looking to improve on what they build in recent years in particular during the 2021/2022 season where they placed second in the league and were a finalist in the domestic cup as well.
