This is a feature getting to know the new members of the Ladies squad!

Which club did you join Rovers from?

Leicester City Women. 

Any jobs alongside playing football?

I currently work in a restaurant waitressing but I’ve got a radiology apprentice starting in February.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Halifax and I’ve lived in the same house for 20 years. 

How did you get into playing football?

A boy in school asked me to go and play football on the moor. I didn’t want to get up early on Saturday mornings and I just wanted to watch Nickelodeon but I eventually went and here I am today!

Do you have a nickname?

Shep calls me Shezza but that’s disgusting! I’ve got S or Flecky or Sezz. Any of them are fine, but not Shezza at all! 

Favourite pre-match meal?

I always have beans and eggs on toast. And if I’m extra hungry I’ll have porridge, too. 

Which place do you want to visit abroad? 

I’ve just booked to go to New York with my boyfriend for my 21st birthday in December. So I’m saving up for that at the moment. 

Career highlight – what is your most memorable moment on the pitch?

Probably winning the FA Cup with Manchester City's Development team last season and also getting to the Euro Finals with England. 

Career ambitions – What do you want to achieve in the game?

I want to get back into the England squad, the U21s and then progressing up. Also winning the league and all the trophies with Blackburn.

Who is the best player you have played with or against?

There’s a few! Demi Stokes at City was really strong, then there’s the likes of Steph Houghton and other England senior players who are at City. Also Georgia Stanway. 

What is your star sign?

Sagittarius, is that how you say it? I don’t know what that means though! 

Do you have any phobias? 

I have a fear of spiders. And also swimming. I can swim but I don’t like going underwater. 

Do you play any musical instruments?

I’ve never played any musical instruments! 

Do you have any pets?

I did have two pet cats, but not anymore. 

What is your favourite film?

I just love chic flicks. I’m into all that rubbish. And I’ve just watched the new series of ‘You’ on Netflix. That was really good, I recommend that. 

Thanks for chatting, Serena!
