Interview

Tell us little about yourself…

Outside of playing football I’m a sports therapist working in a clinic along with also having my own business on the side, providing sports therapy to my private clients. I studied sports therapy at Uni for 3 years to get me my degree and graduated in 2019.

How important is football for you?

Football has always been very important to me, I’ve played ever since I can remember and has always been a big part of my life.

Who was the player, or players, you looked up to most growing up, and why?

Frank Lampard was my biggest role model growing up, especially being a Chelsea supporter. I loved watching him play and was/still is my favourite player.

What is the one change you’d like to see in the women’s game over the next 10 years?

The change in the women’s game already is massive and it’s great to see. In the next 10 years I’d love to see more clubs being able to have the opportunity to go full time. I would also love to see the women’s game continue to grow in popularity, increasing the fan base for women’s football, allowing teams to break even more records.

What were your highs and lows during your football career?

I’d say my lowest times through football were when I sustained an injury. Sadly I’ve always suffered with injuries throughout playing football and still do now. Being injured is incredibly frustrating and is a really tough challenge to get through, both mentally and physically.

I’d say that currently playing for Gillingham is a high in my footballing career as I’m playing first team football in the National League. I also would say that reaching the reserve cup final last year with my old team at Charlton was a big achievement for us, along with only losing one league game all season.

Georgia, wat is your best game you’ve ever been involved in?

The biggest game I’ve been involved with is probably the Reserve National Cup Final.

What is the best thing about playing for Gillingham LFC ?

The best thing for me personally about playing for Gills is that I’m playing in the third tier of women’s football, helping me to develop even more as a player by getting regular game time at first team level. I also love the girls at gills, they are an amazing group and we are like one big family, which makes playing football even more enjoyable.

Georgia, what is your ultimate dream for your football career ?

I’d love to play first team football in the Championship, whether that’s with Gillingham by gaining promotions or by moving to a Championship side in the future.

And what are your targets for the rest of this season?

My targets for the rest of the season are to keep developing as a player both technically and tactically. I’d also like to get stronger physically, so that I can reduce the likelihood of sustaining any injuries!
