Chelsea, introduce yourself…

My names Chelsea Weston and I currently play for Coventry United in the WSL Championship.

What are your specific qualities as a football player?

Technical Ability
Ability to read the game
Experienced
Communication

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

When I was younger I was a centre forward and I used to go and watch Worcester City every week home and away. The CF at the time and my favourite player was Sam Bowen! He was a clinical goal scorer and a legend!

Chelsea, you came from the youth of Birmingham City Women FC. Did you noticed a lot of difference between the youth and the first team ?

I think when I started to train with the first team I was very young so the difference was a lot. I think I was 15 at the time and then going to train with the likes of Jo Potter and Kaz Carney was a massive step up then.

In 2008, you moved from Birmingham City Women FC to Doncaster Rovers Belles LFC. And you stay there for two seasons. How was your time there ?

I actually really enjoyed my time at Donny the players and staff were brilliant and it was a really good family environment. Linking up with Rachel Williams and Vicky Exley was good development for my game and also gave me a lot of experience as a player.

In February 2009, you played in the Belles 5–0 defeat against Arsenal Ladies in the FA Women’s Premier League Cup Final. How did you experience these match?

I think arsenal at the time were still a massive club and for us to get to the final was a great achievement. It was a very tough game and we battled throughout but it just wasn’t meant to be for us on that day against such a strong set up.

You signed in December 2010, for Birmingham City Ladies. where you made 53 league appearances four seasons. How did you experience these period ?

Those first 4 years in the WSL were some of the highlights of my career. We played in the champions league twice (getting to the semis in one of them) won the FA cup, played in the continental cup final and we were in contention for the league in some of those seasons too.

What is the one change you’d like to see in the women’s game over the next 2 years?

I’d like to see the women’s league grow but grow all together not separately. At the moment we are seeing lots of big names coming to the WSL which is brilliant but at the same time it won’t be fun watching other teams in that league get beat by so many goals week in week out either. There needs to be equal investment throughout.

Chelsea, what are your personal goals for this season?

My personal aim is to remain injury free and enjoy the game, which I haven’t been able to do these last few years.

What is your ultimate dream after your football career ?

Live on a beach somewhere.
