My step daughter has played football all her life (she’s 26 now). She started working for the FA at the age of 17. She is a qualified coach, and has coached kids teams, disabled teams, women’s teams and a senior mens team. She has coached in the UK, the US, South Africa and Australia. She is captain of the team she plays for. A couple of days ago she damaged her knee while playing, and needed an MRI scan. The doctor suggested that she ‘should leave soccer to the boys’.
