Badana was selected in the Canadian Under 17 team for the 2010 World Cup and also holds a number of records at her high school, she has been named in Irish senior squads for European Championship qualifiers as well as the Algarve Cup, Cyprus Cup and a number of international friendlies.

 At the announcement of her signing Badana expressed her delight to be signing for the Leesider’s.

 “I am delighted to be here at Cork City. The entire operation, the team, the management and coaches have been so welcoming. I am very much looking forward to being part of this squad.

 “So far I have really enjoyed the training and I am eager to make an impact in how we prepare for the rest of the season. I am still getting acquainted with the team but I am confident that I will adjust to the style of the club,” said the 23-year-old.

 City travel to Kilkenny United on Wednesday evening with both teams looking to pick up their first win in the Continental Tyres Women’s National League this season and Badana is hoping to help her new club get some valuable League points over the remainder of the season.

 City manager Frank Kelleher feels that Badana’s experience can be a huge help to the club.
