After completing her GCSEs at Walton High in June last year, Carrie Mancini was offered a place at the EDSV Football Academy at Oaklands College in St Albans.
Carrie is a residential student at the college Monday to Friday and comes home to Milton Keynes at weekends where she has continued to play for Woburn & Wavendon Ladies. As captain, Carrie has led the team to top of the league, unbeaten so far this season.
She has trained hard with the Academy, alongside studying for a Level 3 National Diploma in Sports Development Coaching and Fitness.
Carrie and her EDSV team mates have just been crowned League Champions of the Category 1 College League.
It is now time for Carrie to move onwards and upwards; she has been offered a place with West Ham Ladies, where she is training twice a week and played her debut match on Sunday 19 March 2017.
Carrie will continue with EDSV and her studies at Oaklands College next year with her ultimate aim of becoming a professional footballer in the UK or in the USA.
Well done Carrie; we are following your career with interest.
