Why Football?

I chose football because it’s a sport that requires you to work together. You’re part of something bigger than yourself. As a team we see everyone at their best and at their worst, but we pull through and every hurdle pushes our boundaries and brings us closer together as a unit. There is no room for hesitation and I love the rush when you lock eyes with your opponent and wonder if they feel the same as you do in that moment.

Hopes for the year?

To make an impression. We’ve already proven that we belong in Division One. Now we need to show how much we’ve grown as a team and what we’re capable of. That the Steelers’ women aren’t to be underestimated.
