After growing her skills in our GADC Programme, Sophie Eastwood is building on her football career by taking it to Wolves RTC.
Sophie Eastwood joined our Under 13’s Girls Advanced Development centre back in 2019 and immediately demonstrated incredible potential. After three years on our GADC programme, Sophie has developed both on and off the field and maintained a fantastic level of commitment to the team. Throughout the 3 years Sophie managed to progress through our Shrewsbury Town female player pathway and became a fantastic demonstration of what our programme represents.
Sophie Eastwood commented:
“Being part of Shrewsbury Town Girls ADC is more than just playing football. Over the past three years as well as great coaching, I have had so many other experiences – from running on the pitch with the Men’s First Team during a league match, to being a ball girl supporting the Women’s First Team players. Wearing the Shrewsbury Town football kit makes you feel really proud, but I think the moment I knew I wanted to take my football further was when we were allowed to play a match on the Shrewsbury Town main stadium pitch -walking out onto Montgomery Waters was one of the most scary but amazing things I had ever done. I am so happy to have got into Wolves RTC – thank you Shrewsbury Town for helping me to be the best I can”.
Education and Learning Co-Ordinator and GADC lead coach, Alex Jones added:
“We are incredibly proud of Sophie’s achievement and wish her all the best in her new upcoming adventure. She is a spectacular player and has a great future ahead of her”
