Hello my name is Cat and I’m a soccer fanatic.

I am an avid Perth Glory supporter, and am torn between Liverpool (my Dad and brother support) and Arsenal (my Mum and sister support). I also love the Matilda (still bitter about the Olympics because they had come so far!) and the Soccerroos. Also, because I live in Australia I am obliged to follow AFL, so I support both the West Coast Eagles and the Fremantle Dockers.

I have been playing soccer for the past ten years. I mainly play in the position of defense or goalkeeping, unless my coach wants to torture me by putting me in midfield (which happens occasionally).

Last year I couldn’t play because I sprained my wrist pretty badly – just another hazard of playing in goals. This meant I was fairly unfit at the beginning of the soccer season, and that’s when I developed shin splints which ultimately is going to keep me out of the entire season this year… more time to focus on university work!
