Now, she is hoping to bring her experiences as a top level athlete and the knowledge she has gained to the Mariners to help their players realised their full potential.

She said: “ When I was an athlete I worked in a multidisciplinary team with physiotherapists and strength and conditioning coaches.

"I can relate to the players and what they're going through and what training they need to do to compete at the top.

"The things I'm bringing to the club should start at grassroots levels, younger players should get this sort of training so that when they get to senior level they can perform to the best of their ability having had that training from a young age.

"I felt like this would be a really good opportunity for me to apply my knowledge and put it into practice to benefit Camelon.

"Hopefully I can help progress the players to make sure they are playing to the best of their ability. It will be a really good opportunity for me and the players.”
