Your role at Bromley FC?

Academy scholar and Under 14 JPL Coach.

How long you have been involved in football? 

I have been involved with football for about 12 years. I just started playing football in the park with my Grandad and dad. I then joined Crystal Palace and then came to Bromley FC when I was 16n and joined the Academy Programme.

Your experience of working in football?

When I was younger my experience of being involved in football was not so positive but as the WSL started there was definitely more encouragement for women and girls. At Bromley they’ve been great and really pushed forward the girls side of football.

What would be your message to other women and girls who would like to work in football?

If you are thinking about getting into football the opportunities in football are now massive – every club is looking for female coaches or female players so just get out there and do it!
