ROKER RAPPORT SPECIAL: Women's Football Weekend w/ ex Sunderland and Kestrels player Jen O'Neill!

The wonderful Jen O'Neill - editor of She Kicks women's football magazine (formerly On the Ball) joined our Rich Speight to discuss... well... pretty much everything!


Including but not limited to:


  • The origins of the side we now know as SAFC Ladies, and Jen's journey through the footballing world since childhood;


  • Her experiences as a player for the Kestrels, and her role in the merger and transition to Sunderland Women;


  • The problems with John MacPhail's shorts...


  • Jen's journey through media - working on the official SAFC programs and her work with On the Ball/She Kicks since leaving her playing career; How far have we come regarding coverage of the women's game?


  • The future of the women's game generally, and the need to match expectation with sustainability;


  • Her experiences playing with the Lasses that went on to become household names... and make up half the National side;


  • Her pride in Mel Reay's side and players like Keira Ramshaw who stuck with the Lasses as the FA condemned them to the lower divisions, and her hopes for the Lasses season and continuing development of young talent;


All this and much more! Listen In! #WomensFootballWeekend #HerGameToo #SAFC #SAFCLadies #watfordfcwomen #FAWCL #FAWSL
