The player and coach implores other girls to try football
After years of watching her brothers play it, Jade Adams admits she always found football ‘boring.’
But after one match she was hooked on the beautiful game.
Now a player and coach at Bangor City, football convert Jade is encouraging other girls to take up the game.
She said: “I was never a football fan. I found it quite boring to be honest.
“Then after the first match I played I loved it so much that I just wanted to play much more.”
Since taking up the sport, Jade insists she’s grown in confident and is constantly improving on and off the pitch.
She said: “Football is a special thing for me because it’s fun and exciting. It’s definitely made me more confident and I’ve made new friends. It’s made me a better team player and not just in football.
When she’s not playing, Jade can usually be found coaching her U10s team and she’s keen to spread the gospel to other young girls who might be reluctant to put on a pair of boots.
She said: “Coaching is really exciting. I just want to help the girls improve and enjoy football and encourage more girls to play football.
“It’s not just a man’s game it could be anybody’s game.”
