Poppy joins Everton under 20's team

Poppy, one of our most talented footballers, spent an incredible week training with the Everton under 20's team recently.

At the age of 11, Poppy was scouted whilst playing for the Brickfield boys team and signed with Everton. She spent one season with Everton's Under 12s team before moving to Liverpool Ladies for another two seasons. Poppy has subsequently returned to Everton and has played regularly in the Under 16s side for the past two years.

Poppy was thrilled to be able to train with the Under 20s team because she hopes to play professionally one day. The training day started with one hour in the gym and then the players moved onto the pitch where they learnt ball skills, positional play and tactics followed by some practice matches.

We are very proud of poppy and her achievements and dedication to the sport that she loves.
