The 16-year-old footballer, from Crich and a student at Anthony Gell School, Wirksworth, plays for Birmingham City Ladies and has represented England against the likes of Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, France, Denmark, Holland, Finland and Iceland.

Katy says: "I have been playing football since I was eight years old at Derby County centre of excellence up until this season where I signed on for Birmingham City Ladies to hopefully advance my development playing senior football at the age of 16.

"Internationally, I have been involved in the England squad for the past three-and-half years years, working through the age groups Under-15s, Under-16s and Under-17s. I have played internationally both home and away against teams such as Germany, Holland and Denmark in excess of 12 times. I have also played internationally for the England schools team.

"I currently train three times a week with Birmingham City Ladies Super League team. This involves travelling to Birmingham after school, where I am currently studying my A levels. We play matches on Sunday afternoons against teams such as Man City, Liverpool, Notts County and Everton.

"My ambitions for the future are to continue to develop in my game and to be selected for further England international fixtures and also to play for the WSL team."
