Season best scorer 2017 (under 18s)
Has represented Cheshire County over several years.
Playing college soccer has been a huge motivational factor for me - both academically and in my football. Not only would it mean the best of both worlds but also equates to a huge life adventure for me. I have had to battle an Audio Processing Disorder to get my academic achievements and I have had to bounce back from various injuries (all ill timed) but I am here - and I am ready to go!!
I love being part of a team - on or off the pitch.
Over the years I have always done my best to work well and communicate well with other players. It's great being team Captain but even when this is not the case I still take the time to know the other players and encourage them to give their best.
In addition to qualifications in both Coaching and Refereeing, I am part of the Cheshire FA Youth Forum - with responsibility for promoting Women in football. In this role I have had to design and deliver a schools recruitment assembly. I'm happy to report that it did prove effective!
Outside the world of football I am an avid dramatist: I love developing a script and working with a group of actors to evolve a piece of work. This can be a challenge as it requires enthusiasm, discipline, diplomacy and talent in equal measure. Exactly like football then!!
I would continue to follow best practice with respect to my physical, mental and emotional well being: Eat well, train hard and don't forget to have fun!
Through my GCSE and BTEC qualification I have a good knowledge of the requirements of sports nutrition, optimal training and sports psychology. I look forward to pursuing this at a club with optimal facilities and alongside like minded teammates.
I also believe in maintaining a broader outlook in life, so I would ideally like to foster interests outside my football life. As I mentioned earlier, I am a huge fan of drama/theatre so I would hope to join a group at college - and make more new friends.
Qualified Level 1 FA coach - inspiring young footballers weekly.
Since volunteering as part of the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, I have continued to give my time to grassroots football. In fact this has been something of a family tradition as both my parents - and now my sister - lend their free time to local clubs.
I find this very rewarding and am happy and privileged to do it. I still give credit to the first female coach to inspire and encourage me when I started out.
