This Monday saw Katie Kitching sign on the dotted line for the London City Lionesses. Read on to find out everything you need to know about the newest member of the Pride!
How does it feel to have joined the London City Lionesses?
It’s really exciting and I can't wait to get going! It's such a professional environment and I just can't wait to get started.
What can fans expect to see from you out on the pitch?
They’ll always see me giving my all for the team. I love to get stuck in and I don't mind a good challenge, and being quick and direct.
What was it for you that really excited you about the London City Lionesses?
It was definitely the professionalism of the environment, and how it all just felt like home. Everyone was nice and welcoming and I just felt comfortable here.
Away from football, what do you like to do to relax?
Talking to family and watching Netflix are definitely my go to’s when it comes to taking a break. I just finished watching ‘Stay Close’, and I just love murder mystery shows like that. Also, true crime is definitely a genre I can't get enough of!
When you were growing up, who was your football idol?
Definitely Lionel Messi, 100%. I remember just watching him all the time. Closer to home, I’m a Leeds fan, and unfortunately when I was growing up, there weren’t too many ‘idols’ knocking around at the time!
What are you looking forward to doing in London?
It's a bit different from back home in Beadle, so I'm definitely excited to be living in a busy city, no disrespect to Leeds, and just start exploring and having the place feel like home for me.
