Ms Neal has appeared in the Cambridge Independent and proudly talks to reporter Mark Taylor about her aspirations to inspire a new generation in her Super League aim playing with Watford!
The article, link below, details how she overcame injury and persevered to get back to her place in the squad at Watford.
An inspirational read where Ms Neal opens up about her journey into women’s football from a young girl to a woman, Ms Neal quotes;
“I started playing with the boys at Bar Hill, but at that time I got to the age of 12 and you had to go and play in a girls’ team,” said Neal.
“That’s changed now which I believe personally will raise the standard of the women’s game massively.
“If you can play with boys and compete with boys, then the standard will go up, as will the confidence.
“And I think confidence with women is a big downfall, whereas if you’re confident enough to take on a boy, you’ll never fear any girl.”
Well done Ms Neal!
