So Olivia – tell us a bit about yourself!

I’m Olivia Wilson and I play for Burnley FC Women.

How important is football for you?

Football is very important to me as I love to play it. To play football 3 times a week whilst a full time uni student would be hard for most people but for me I enjoy going to training and it takes my mind off university.

Tell us about your career to date – where have you played your football?

I started off playing for Man United Centre of Excellence from u15 to u17 and they didn’t have a first team so after u17 I left and went to play for Everton Ladies reserves, and I went on tour to Gibraltar with the first team, then finally I have moved to Burnley Women and this is my first season there.

In the past you played football for Manchester United WFC. How did you experience these periods?

My time at Manchester United was an experience I will never get as they gave me my first chance to play in a centre of excellence and we managed to reach the FA youth cup final which is a day to remember itself, and also winning the league with u17.

After your time by Manchester United WFC, you moved to Everton FC Women. Was there a lot of difference between these clubs?

There was a big difference as Everton had a first team to progress to which pushed me even more as man united had no progression to a first team at the time.

Since July 2019 you played for Burnley FC Women. Why did you chose for Burnley ?

I chose Burnley as I knew myself I was ready to step into senior football and ready for a new challenge and after speaking to the club Burnley was the right club for me to give me a new challenge.

You have played at several football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?

Burnley as it has taught me a lot with the step from academy football to senior football.

Olivia, what is the craziest thing you’ve ever experienced in a match?

Winning a match 22-0.

What are your personal goals or the rest of this season?

My personal goals would be to add some goals to my game, as this season I have 0 and also to keep developing my game.

What is your ultimate dream for your football career ?

My ultimate dream would be to make the women’s FA cup final and have the chance to play on Wembley.
