I've always loved creating unique combinations. Whether it's my own cooking (I've collated cookbooks from every country ever visited) or my wild (and sometimes wise) wardrobe or mixing my home décor with the old and the new. I love being individual.

Being made captain of this year's team was an incredible honour and one of my proudest career moments to date. Leading the team out onto the pitch is an incredible feeling. I would say this feeling has been coupled with the success from last season when we finished fourth in the world. And of course, sharing this success with an amazing group of girls.

During the match I'll be on hand if any jerseys are ripped or bloodied. I tend to be up and down at least 20 times, so you don't really take in everything that happens on the pitch. I'll generally watch the recording the day after the match so see exactly how the team played!
