I’m Alice Griffiths, 19 years old and a Centre midfielder for Charlton Athletic Women. My dad introduced me to football when I was quite young and I’ve loved it ever since. I started out as a striker but now play as a holding midfielder. I have also played as a centre back internationally, but my favourite position is in centre midfield because I can get on the ball much more. Mia Hamm was, and still is, a big inspiration to me. She plays in the same position and although she retired before I started playing I watch so many videos of her game.
I’m Sorba Thomas and play as winger by Boreham Wood FC. I am know in Boreham Wood as the entertainer. I am a quick skilful winger who thrives of setting up my team mates and being the difference on the pitch. Growing up watching Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho just made me love football wanted to be like them play like them etc and back in the days I was always a striker growing up but once I came to Boreham Wood they started playing me as a winger and now the rest is history.
I’m a 19 year old football player who lives in Swansea and plays for Newport county! Football has always been a massive part of my life since I was young. My qualities as a defender I would say are on the ball as I like to play and try to keep my self-composed on the ball at all times! I got into Newport academy just after I turned 15 as they were watching me when I played for Cardiff development squad and picked me up from there. Yes made my debut against Southend United and it was an unreal moment for me something I’ve dreamt of all my life…
I’d like to think I’m an all-round midfielder as I’ve got a good first touch, wide range of passing, improving at driving with the ball and I don’t mind the dirty side, for example running, heading, tackling. Massive, it’s all I’ve ever really known & gives me a purpose every day.
Within a football environment , I’d say everyone at the club you’re at as you all want to achieve the same goal….
I make a good football player because I am a team player and will work hard during games. I have a lot of qualities that will help my teammates out. My strongest qualities are my speed, strength and finishing. The most important football lesson I have learned is that you have to be resilient and if you aren’t you won’t make it. You have a lot of ups and downs and you need to bounce back from them.
Hi I’m Nathaniel Jarvis, 27 Years of age and I play for Chippenham Town in the National League South. Football is an escape from everyday life for me. A way of life, to stay fit and healthy. As well as way to socialise with mates. Football is an escape from everyday life for me. A way of life.
