FC KANSAS CITY LOANS SINEAD FARRELLY TO APOLLON LIMASSOL LFC

Cyprus Team Hopes To Advance Through UEFA Champions League Round of 32

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kansas (September 19, 2013) – FC Kansas City announced today that the club has agreed to loan midfielder Sinead Farrelly to Apollon Limassol LFC. Farrelly, who is expected to arrive in Cyprus next week, will be on loan through January 31, 2014.

“This is a great opportunity for Sinead,” said Head Coach Vlatko Andonovski. “She played there last year and the chance for her to grow in the Champions League will make her a better player than she already is.”

Farrelly was one of the first signings for Andonovski’s FC Kansas City. She appeared in 16 games, starting ten. She scored her first NWSL goal on April 26th in a 2-0 victory over the Seattle Reign.

“I’m just really excited to head back over there (Cyprus),” said Farrelly. “It’s so exciting to participate in the Champions League since something like that doesn’t exist here in the U.S. I can’t wait to head back to Europe and see all the girls and staff and keep playing at a high level. I have learned a lot and I’m excited to grow even more as a player.”

This will be Farrelly’s second stint with the Cyprus club, having played for Apollon Ladies FC last season. The team is currently leading the A-League and looking to advance to the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 for the first time in club history. She will be joining fellow National Women’s Soccer League players Jasmyne Spencer from the Washington Spirit, Joanna Lohman and Lianne Sanderson, both of the Boston Breakers.
