What excites you about joining the SRUSA team?
I am looking forward to the prospect of being able to help ambitious players take their next step in their footballing journey, being a reliable point of contact for them when they have questions, and being able to see the players playing football to be able to help them find the school which will be the best fit for them.
Having being involved in the women’s and girls game, what are your thoughts on the pathway to America?
It is exciting to see how there is more and more opportunities for players who want to go out to America to play and experience the way of life, there is clear elite opportunities out their which is shown from previous players, who have been out there and either stayed out there or some back and ended up signing professional contracts.

I believe by my understanding of the women’s and girls game at a variety of different levels, I will be able to help provide the tools for players at different levels and all walks of life, to help them succeed in achieving their dream of going to America.
