How did you become involved in Women's football?

Through a former coach, Trevor Atkinson. We met on a UEFA B Licence course three years ago.  I watched a couple of matches last season and was extremely impressed.  An opportunity came along and here I am.

 

Ambition within football

To work with players and develop them so that they can realise their talent and potential.

 

Person you admire within football and why?

Lionel Messi.

Genius.

 

Person you admire outside football and why?

The TV Football pundit. Gets paid a load of money for stating the obvious.

Genius.

 

How do you spend your spare time when not involved with football?

Spare time - yes that would be nice!  Probably watching my two sons play football.
