"All my colleagues at work are so happy for me and the team. I think they are some of our biggest fans. Quite a few turned up for the last game of the season when we beat Edinburgh Caledonia 4-0 away. Customers know I play for the Warriors too and always ask me how we've got on."

Samantha, who began playing football at the age of 17 when she joined West Park United, and the Motherwell Development team, before joining the Warriors in 2022, explained how important it was to her to act as a role model to young girls, she said:

“One of the things I like best is that young girls who want to play football come to us and want to have their photos taken with us. We are like role models. It's great that women's football has taken off."
