The club are proud to announce that Lucy Watson is now the First Team Captain. The cultured central defender joined the Club last season and made an immediate impact. As well as being a fanstastic player, Lucy is a calming presence throughout the team.
Lucy has all the characteristics to make a great captain, with the management team opting for a player who can act as a consummate professional on and off the pitch whilst representing Wallsend BC Women Football Club.
Manager Abi commented: Lucy is a player who last season showed her leadership skills, her ability to organise and command throughout the game. I’m delighted she’s accepted the captaincy role for the new season, and we look forward to working with her as we build on last season.
Lucy added: I am really proud and excited to be made captain for this season. I am looking forward to the challenges ahead and I know that the girls can kick on from what we achieved last season as we aim for promotion.
Everyone connected with the club are delighted with the appointment.
