Meet Erin of Connah’s Quay Nomads!

After every Female Focus, I’ve made it a tradition to pop out and buy a bar of my subject’s favourite chocolate.

Well now I’ve changed the game and instead I listen to their Favourite Song (I’ve never heard of any of them). Loose Ends lasted 17 seconds on my sound system (or when he starts ‘singing’/talking). Different age group, different tastes maaan.

Full Name

Date of Birth

First football memory

Joining Northop Hall FC, my first ever football team.

Football idol

From a very young age I’ve always looked up to Lionel Messi.


Right/Left Midfield (preferably right as I’m predominantly right footed).

Most memorable game played in

Erin (back row – second player from the right) lines up with the Nomads

The first game at Nomads Ladies. We had never played together before and ended up with a win against Wrexham FC (5-2).

Best goal scored

The best goal I’ve scored was produced from a corner, was a proper curler into the top right of the net! It wasn’t intended but I pulled it off very well!

Strengths to your game

My fitness.


Giving up too easily if i lose the ball.

Best team-mate played alongside

Kate Horne (red) is an inspiration

Kate Horne 100%. She has an immense talent for the game – great ability to both attack and defend but also creates unbelievable passes, working the team around the pitch.

Hardest opponent faced

An American team from Texas a few years back (see picture above). Their style of play was much different to ours, such a good experience.

Biggest influence in football

This has to be my brother. He doesn’t play football anymore but when I was little he had a massive impact on me.

Funniest team-mate

Jenn Haynes, we just bounce off each other.

Which team-mate is the best dancer

Liv Owens forever both on and off the pitch🕺🏽

Personal football ambitions

I want to remain passionate about the sport and continue to play competitively.

Best country visited

Dubai. I’ve been there twice and should hopefully be going again soon!

Favourite chocolate

Best film seen this year
