GLL Sport Foundation Team

  • Name – Amy Bradley
  • Role  – Foundations Officer
  • What is your favourite sport – Football
  • How did you get into sport – I began playing football for my local team at the age of 10 and never looked back! I went on to represent the county and I was offered a place on a Football academy college programme, to combine education alongside developing my football skills. This led to a place in the club’s senior teams, where I spent the next five seasons playing at a high level. After having surgery for a bad knee injury and taking some time out of the game, I returned to playing football for my local team.
  • What is your favourite sporting memory – Playing in a cup match with 10 players and being 5-0 down at halftime, we came back to equalise the game 5-5 and ended up winning it 6-5 in extra time! This game will always be a reminder to never give up, even when the odds are stacked up against you!
