I have been lucky to take the same squad of girls for a number of years now. The friendships that I’ve made with every single one of them and the friendships they’ve made with each other have been so special. They’re a squad that work so hard for each other and we always have so much fun together at training. My favourite thing about coaching them is deffo being able to watch them grow from the wee babies they were when they started into great players and brilliant young girls. Best team in the club hands down.
