Rebecca secures major trophy
 Women's Football News 27 Nov 2007
Rebecca secures major trophy - 27 Nov 2007 - Women's Football NewsEnglish-born Rebecca Angus won her first major trophy in Norway earlier this month in her first season with Kolbotn IL.
Rebecca scored the club's final goal in their 4-2 win over Asker in the Norwegian Cup Final at the Bislett sports ground. She received her trophy from the King of Norway after the match.
21-year-old Rebecca, from Middlesbrough, joined Kolbotn for the 2007 season after four years in her US college team in Tennessee. As well as winning the Cup, Kolbotn were second this season in the top women's league, the Toppserien.
Kolbotn's trainer, Trine Lise Andersen, was asked on TV whether Rebecca has something of the 'Wayne Rooney' style about her. "It's good to have a matchwinner with a killer instinct who can come on and settle a match. Rebecca does that for us," she replied.
Angus came on in the 67th minute and within five minutes she was surrounded by team mates, including skipper Trine Rønning and Solveig Gulbrandsen, part of the Norway team which reached fourth place in the World Cup in China. A cross had come in from the left wing, she was careful to stay onside and had to be quick to extend a toe onto the ball, finishing up sliding on her back watching the Asker keeper's attempted save.
Rebecca's father and two small brothers stayed over for the weekend and did not go to the post-match party, preferring to travel back to Kolbotn to spend the evening with her family. "I hopped on a bus full of small girls and was mobbed! They were so excited to have a player on the bus with them," she said. "The four of us went to the local pub and I got my beer 'on the house', which was nice. Later I put my two brothers to bed, and my dad to bed, and hit the town with the girls," she laughed.
Rebecca is a passionate Middlesbrough supporter and has been talked about as a possible future England player, having recently been called up for an Under-23 training camp. However she says, "just now I am concentrating on scoring some goals and winning trophies." She has retained her Middlesbrough accent through the years in America. "It's important to be proud of where you are from," she reveals.
An impressive 11 goals in this season's league has taken her to fifth place in Norway's list of leading scorers in the 2007 league, alongside national household names such as Melissa Wiik and the two Gulbrandsens. In all she has 16 goals from 26 games - a brilliant first season in Norway for Rebecca Angus. (Alan Boswell)
