Young Icelandic Footballer Signed by Broendby

Rakel Hönnudóttir, who plays for Akureyri club Thór/KA and the national women’s football team, accepted an offer yesterday from Danish champions Broendby to join their team until spring.

Hönnudóttir, who recently earned the title Best Akureyri Athlete of 2008, will play with Broendby until mid-May when the Icelandic championship begins. She will then rejoin her old club Thór/KA and play for them next summer, Morgunbladid reports.

Hönnudóttir’s contract with Broendby is of historical significance, because she is the first foreign footballer to join the team, which has had a near monopoly on the Danish championship title for the past years.
