Q&A

Q. What inspired you to become a professional footballer?

A. I have only been a full ‘professional’ for about nine months but I still have to have a small job on the side to Football. I have always wanted to have football as a career so I’m very lucky to have experienced this in the later stages of my career.



Q. What's the best piece of advice you've been given?

A. Be the best that you can be - don’t take for granted what you have because it can be taken away in a heart beat.

Q. What is your proudest moment in football and why?

A. For club – being chosen as captain by my fellow team mates at BCLFC in WSL Season 2016.
For international – my very first England senior cap and reaching the final of the European Championships in 2009

Q. If you could play against any team in any league in the world who would you play, in what stadium and why?

A. I would love to play a competitive game at Wembley in an England shirt.

Q. What are your favourite pre and post-match meals?

A. Porridge is a pre match favourite amongst the girls, I like to have mine with chia seeds and maple syrup, especially having learnt how maple can help with performance. Post match I will eat anything, sometimes I have a little treat !



Q. What is your favourite way to use pure Canadian maple syrup?

A. As I said porridge is a favourite amongst the girls and that’s what I use it in mainly as a pre training and pre match meal. After our first cooking class with the UK chef ambassador for Maple Products from Quebec I re-created the spiced cauliflower dish as a post training meal, it is delicious!
