Filipinas defender Cowart signs with Serbia’s Subotica


After playing a key role in the Philippine Women’s National Football Team’s annexation of the 2022 AFF Women’s Championship, defender Jessika Cowart is ready to make the next step in her professional career.

Serbian club ŽFK Spartak Subotica announced on Thursday that it has signed Cowart. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“COWART JESSIKA REBECCA is the new reinforcement of the champion of Serbia,” read the translated headline on the club’s Facebook post.

“COWART JESSIKA REBECCA is the new Spartak football player !! (She) is a twenty-two-year-old footballer from the Philippines who plays in defense and comes to us from FC Rizespora (Turkey). Jessica is (a) national team player of the Philippines.

“Welcome Jessica – Welcome! 💙 #ŽFKSpartak #Golubice #MISMOSpartak”

Cowart is the second Filipina to have signed a contract with a Serbian club. She follows in the footsteps of teammate Quinley Quezada, who signed for Red Star Belgrade last June.

The 5-foot-8 defender out of University of Washington is joining a club that has won 12 Serbian League crowns and seven Serbian Cups.

Cowart made her debut with the Filipinas in a 1-0 loss to the Republic of Ireland last June and she made five appearances in the Philippines’ triumphant 2022 AFF Women’s Championship campaign on home soil, which saw her score the first goal in the final against Thailand.
