Steph Small has been with the Cherries for six seasons and has made quite an impact between the sticks.
During her time with the club, she has won two Players’ Player of the Season awards, numerous Player of the Match awards and worked her way up from the development team to the first team.
Last year, she enjoyed a particularly memorable campaign, helping the Cherries climb to the top of the Southern Region Women's Premier League table before the Covid-19 pandemic brought the season to a halt.
A dedicated member of the squad, Small also works at AFC Bournemouth off the field and is often found coaching on the 3G pitches outside Vitality Stadium.
Working for the Community Sports Trust, the shot-stopper spends her time teaching youngsters the rules of the game, as well as helping out with tours of AFC Bournemouth’s headquarters.
