“Being able to play for the women’s first team at Leyton Orient is an opportunity and a step towards greater representation of women in football. I have been playing since I was seven years old and saw it only as something to fill my spare time. However, I’ve come to realise that someday I could make a career and would like to encourage other women to think they can too!”
