17. Axelle Courlander
Date of birth
Left-back Axelle has struggled mightily with injury but if she can recover her fitness then she is a quality distributor of the ball on the left. She started her playing career at Hitchin Town Ladies before moving on to Arlesey Town Ladies and spent a month playing at the IMG football academy, where she was offered several scholarships to the US. She chose instead to study at the University of East Anglia where she won a league title with the university’s women’s football team. Axelle sat out two years post-university with recurrent injuries but joined the O’s in 2015 and is working to be fit for the 2016-17 season.
