The playground, Wembley, the park – it doesn’t matter to Casey Stoney. She loves kicking a ball around.

Casey grew up being the only girl playing in boys’ teams. In her first game for one club, they didn’t pass to her for the first half-hour. And she ended up being their player of the season.

Football was the one place I could go and feel free

– Casey Stoney

“I had quite a tough childhood at times,” she says. “There were a lot of struggles at home.”

“Football was the one place where I could go and feel free, and I could forget everything else that was going on.”

Casey’s mother found her a team to play for. A boys’ team.

“I got teased a lot. Back then, you had to earn their respect. The only way I could do that was by showing them what I could do with a ball.”

Now 34 years old, Casey has more than a hundred England caps and represented Great Britain at the 2012 Olympic Games. She plays in the FA Women’s Super League for Liverpool Ladies
