Last term, she came off the bench against Brighton and Hove Albion in the WSL and against Reading in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

On the international stage, the young forward has represented Finland as an Under-15, and England at Under-17, Under-18, and Under-19.

After 30 years without a women’s team, the most famous football club in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is starting its first screening training. From the 2023/2024 season onwards, there will be a women’s and girls’ division.

“Of course, everyone was excited – me anyway, because we hadn’t expected such a huge response,” remembers the club’s coordinator for women’s and girls’ football, Frank Goesch. Almost nine months later, the newly founded women’s team is already one of the most successful in the northeast.

The Hansa Rostock footballers have not lost a point this season – they are the only team in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Association League, the fourth-highest division. And what does that say about the state of women’s football in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania? “That means that there is a lot of talent lying dormant in Mecklenburg,” emphasizes Goesch.
