Jasmine last week was picked to join Leeds United Girls after a lengthy set of trials.
We could not be more proud of her.
Jasmine joined Foot-Tech in 2016 having barely played much football. Her development since then has been unreal.
We’d love to say we have these magical drills that turn children into pro’s...but we don’t.
What we do have is a set of amazing coaches who encourage and try to instil a practice mentality￼ in the players.
Jasmine is possibly the best example of this.
She turns up early, practises constantly and never stops trying. You’d do well to ever see her without a ball at her feet.
Once she reached a level she joined Wigton Girls where Brett and his team took her game to the next stage (amazing team for anyone with girls interested in football). She played a year above herself but wasn’t afraid to try.
And now she’s been rewarded with an amazing opportunity.
But guess what?
Instead of sitting back and relaxing, she asked us to help her improve even more before she starts with Leeds.
Jasmine has a wand of a left foot but knows she can get better with her right, so she’s straight on a course if 121’s for exactly that 💪
We always say it - there is no secret to professing in football...
