Forward Achterhof leaves Durham by mutual consent

Durham have this evening confirmed that Dutch forward Iris Achterhof has left the club by mutual consent.

The 24-year-old has spent a little over two seasons with The Wildcats and was most recently on target for the club in their 3-1 defeat at Sheffield United in the FA Women’s Championship nine days’ ago.

The player was not named in the squad for Durham’s latest FA Women’s Championship fixture against Charlton Athletic at Maiden Castle on Sunday and The Wildcats have this evening reported Achterhof’s departure on their official cub website.

The forward joined Durham in 2019 following a spell playing in the Icelandic top flight with Thór / KA. Achterhof has scored four goals for The Wildcats in 15 FA Women’s Championship appearances. The player recently made her competitive return to action following almost a year on the sidelines recovering from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury sustained in Durham’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool at the start of last season.

It has been reported that Achterhof will now explore her future career options after leaving Durham with the forward seemingly not having a new club lined up. The player spent the early years of her career in her homeland with Heerenveen and a return to The Netherlands could be a potential option.
