Women's players inspire next generation


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Three members of AFC Bournemouth’s Women’s team have been speaking to young girls in the community about their experiences in the game.

To mark International Women’s Day, Gemma Hillier, Molly Clark and Katie Scadding gave up an hour of their evening to discuss their careers to date and give advice to those listening.

Girls from the under-10, under-12, under-14 and under-16 teams all partook in the Zoom call and were able to get involved in a special question-and-answer session with the players.

Hillier and Clark, both summer signings for Steve Cuss’ side, shared their experiences of competing in the World Beach Games, while Scadding, who is just 19 years old, spoke of her heroics in this season’s FA Cup.

With a return to action hopefully imminent for all girls and women’s teams, the evening provided a good opportunity to see some familiar faces and interact with one another.

Afterwards, Cuss shared his thoughts with afcb.co.uk.

“The question-and-answer session with the Women’s team players was a great way to end International Women’s Day.

“It was a fantastic opportunity for those from our girls teams and Premier League Kicks sessions to ask their questions directly to Gemma, Molly and Katie, who gave some great advice and details from their own career experiences.”

AFC Bournemouth Women are proudly supported by two local companies.

Thank you to Bournemouth University for being the front of shirt sponsor and thank you to Vitality for supporting our Women's and Girls setup.
