Katie Scadding has been involved with AFC Bournemouth for years, representing the junior teams and helping the Cherries win the Premier League Girls’ National Cup at Wembley in her youth.
Now in the senior squads, the goalkeeper built on her four first-team appearances from the 2017/18 season, notching up no fewer than 15 outings between the sticks the following year.
She was also pivotal in the side’s Chairman’s Cup victory over Moneyfields in May 2019, with a string of fine saves to keep her team in the game, even playing the dying stages with a broken wrist!
Last season, she enjoyed a successful campaign, playing her part as the side topped the Southern Region Women's Premier League before it was halted due to Coronavirus.
The former Dorset goalkeeper is also currently a member of staff with the Community Sports Trust, coaching hundreds of children and adults each week.
Scadding has also caught the eye of national team scouts, having been chosen to attend an England camp in the past.
