Taylor to Play For State
Congratulations to Year 11 student Taylor Reid, who has been selected to represent Western Australia in the Goldfields U21 Women’s State Team. We asked Taylor about her selection.
What club do you belong to?
I currently play for Stirling Panthers – both the Women’s Premier League and Reserves, I have played for Perth Soccer Club in the past.
How long have you been playing soccer?
I have been playing soccer for 11 years, since I was 6 years old. It has always been my passion to become a professional woman soccer player just like Samantha Kerr.
What do you enjoy most about the sport?
The things I enjoy most about soccer is the variety of girls that come together to work as a team and have the same passion I do for soccer. I love the game, it’s very competitive which makes winning a greater achievement.
How were you chosen to represent WA?
I was given an opportunity by Football West to take part in the trials and then found out I was selected to represent Australia in Bali.
Where will you be playing?
I will be playing in Denpasar, Bali against five other teams who represent: DKI Selection Jakarta, PFA Bali, Arimbi FC Yogyakarta, Nanggam (Papua selection) and IMMAPA Papua.
