My weakness is my fitness. I need to get a lot fitter if I want to develop as a player.

Best team-mate played alongside

Laura Eagles is probably the best team-mate I have played alongside. Her ability to see create passes is unbelievable and her composure on the ball is a great asset to the team.

Hardest opponent faced

Cyncoed Ladies FC

Biggest influence in football

My biggest influence off the pitch would be my uncle. He would always ask me how well the game had gone and he helped me to learn everything I know.

Funniest team-mate
