Academy trial South African duo
 Women's Football News 5 Feb 2011
Bristol Academy WFC is looking to the southern hemisphere to strengthen its squad further before the new FA WSL begins in April by inviting the current South African Captain, Amanda Dhlamini and former Captain Janine van Wyk to a two week trial.
Whilst in the UK, the South African duo will train with the BAWFC team, attend local schools to help with BAWFC School training sessions, play a trial match for Bristol Academy Reserves and attend Ashton Gate to watch Bristol City vs Leeds United.
Janine Van Wyk is a strong, influential defender for the South African national team, known as Banyana Banyana. She won Player of the Year: Senior Women's National Team SAFA Award for 2010. Amanda Dhlamini also plays for Banyana Banyana as a free scoring attacker. She was nominated for a Player of the Year: Senior Women's National Team SAFA Award 2010, only to be pipped by Janine.
Mark Sampson said: "In bringing a squad together for the inaugural Women's Super League we want to make sure we have a mix of youth and experience. Our Club is very much grounded in the West Country and the majority of players are from this region. Many have had long connections with the Club over a number of years.
"However we also need to select players from wider afield who will complement the nucleus of the squad and who have the experience of competing at the highest levels of the game. Both Janine and Amanda are very experienced international players, they have an outstanding reputation and have exactly the right values we are looking for at Bristol Academy.
"It's a great opportunity for them to gain experience in England, but we will require them to adapt to our style of play and the weather conditions (currently 20 degrees lower than in South Africa!. They are staying locally to us thanks to the fantastic support we continue to have from Holiday Inn Express and so they can train with us every day. The FA Women's Super League has a 20-player cap and with 17 players, including the Dutch star Anouk Hoogendijk already signed for the club, the last few places are a premium, so I wish them well over the next two weeks."
