20 October 2015

Find out more about the stars of the ladies team...

Goalkeepers
Casey Dunford
DOB: 20/08/94
Previous Clubs: Bucks New Uni, Haywards Heath Ladies
She Says: I’ve followed the men's team since I was 10 and wanted to play football myself, and I’ve achieved that by joining the ladies squad this season. The team are friendly, easy going and a very talented bunch of girls who I have the pleasure of working alongside on the football pitch.

Emma Klima
DOB: 20/04/96
Previous Clubs: Penn and Tylers, AFC Lightning
She Says: I’ve been at the club for four years and came here because they were the best club who would have me! I’ve stayed because the team are really fun to play with and are really talented.

Defenders
Kim Bignall
DOB: 20/08/1992
Position: Right-Back
Previous Club: Marlow
She Says: I joined Wycombe at the end of last season and it was the best decision I’ve made. The girls are not just my team-mates but also my friends. I’m tiny and I look like a 12-year-old but I’m fierce and feisty on the pitch!

Helen Taylor
DOB: 04/11/84
Position: Left-Back
Previous Club: Old Actonians
She Says: I’ve been at the club for two years– there’s a great team spirit and a great manager.

Steph McDaid
DOB: 21/11/92
Position: Centre-Back
Previous Club: Hazlemere
She Says: This is my first proper season with Wycombe as I’d been with Hazlemere for nine or ten years. I wanted to be a striker but I can’t, so I became a defender!

Lou White
DOB: 27/05/93
Position: Centre-Back
Previous Club: Hazlemere
She Says: I was originally at Wycombe for seven years and I came back because all the girls are friendly and I enjoy the training and keeping fit.

Char Bagshaw (Team Captain)
DOB: 08/04/93
Position: Sweeper
Previous Clubs: None
She Says: I’ve been at Wycombe since I was 10. I joined because they were (and still are) the biggest club in Bucks. The funny thing is that I was so quiet in my youth that people didn’t know I existed, but becoming captain at 18 changed that!

Mollie Courtenay
DOB: 07/01/91
Position: Full-Back
Previous Clubs: None
She Says: I’ve played for Wycombe since I was eight or nine. I like playing here because they are the smartest and kindest group of players I’ve ever played with.

Midfielders
Nicola Kirk (Club Captain)
DOB: 03/08/85
Position: Holding Midfielder
Previous Clubs: None
She Says: I joined Wycombe as my family were season ticket holders so it meant a lot to them that I play for the club. I remember one funny time where our manager had to referee a game and when one of our players was fouled, he shouted ‘ref!’ before realising that he was indeed the ref!

Holly Hussey-Burd
DOB: 29/01/96
Position: Central Midfield
Previous Club: Penn and Tylers
She Says: I’ve been at the club for five years – I came here because they were welcoming and played a high standard of football.

Christina O’Connor
DOB: 31/07/93
Position: Midfield
Previous Club: Marlow
She Says: This is my first season – I came from Marlow because I’m a traitor! The girls call me ‘Boro’ because I’m originally from Middlesbrough.

Rebecca Gooch (Vice Captain)
DOB: 29/07/93
Position: Central Midfield
Previous Clubs: Bitterne FC, Riverside Ladies
She Says: I like playing for Wycombe because the team made me feel comfortably when I joined, and the manager is supportive. I’ve definitely seen an improvement in my game. My old team had to change their name from Bitterne Boys FC to Bitterne FC as I was the only girl playing for them!

Gemma Najar
DOB: 14/08/96
Position: Central Midfield or Striker
Previous Clubs: Reading Ladies, Bloomfield Force (USA), Rochester Soccer Club (USA )
