THE TEAM

STEPH NELSON

Attacking Midfield

An all round, complete player. Barely a weakness to her game… Never scored a header despite her big-headedness.

EMMA HOPKINS

Striker

You can sum Emma up in just three words: 
Striker - the greatest #9 the Goats Women have ever had. Captain - the greatest leader the Goats Women have ever had. Moaner - the biggest complainer the Goats Women have ever had.

NINA MERRITT

Goalkeeper

The safest pair of hands in the Thames Valley! Returns to the squad after a season with Maidenhead United.

CHARLOTTE CLARKE

Defender

Solid at the back and brings the banter too - Charlotte is the perfect squad member… Though gets through cards quicker than a Blackjack dealer.

One half of the formidable Centre Back duo with Sophie Wicks. Provides the funniest football facials out there!

SAM THOREAU

Defender

Hard-hitting defender. Roy Keane is reportedly scared of a 50-50 with her. Stand in goalkeeper in the FA Cup this season.

KATIE DEARLING

Defender

Part time QPR fan, full time Goats fans. FA Cup QR3 draw will test her allegiances!

CAITLIN LEVY

Midfielder

What a player - partial to scoring a screamer. Her name may be CaitlIN - but CaitOUT INJURED is sometimes more appropriate!

JODIE HAYDEN

Social Secretary 

While Jodie offers a lot on the pitch (when she’s available!), she certainly goes hard off the pitch too. There was no more appropriate candidate to organise the club socials. Has a boat.

SOPHIE WICKS

Centre Back

The second half of the Hobson-Wicks Centre Back wall. Loves scoring a long-range free kick! Works hard… Twerks hard.

FREYA JENKINS

Left Wing

Like her Men’s Team namesake (Alex Jenkins), a full back’s worst nightmare. Freya has a wand of a left foot and just cannot stop scoring!

ROSIE PAGE-SMITH

Striker

The spearhead of the Goats’ attack. Although the picture may not show it, she loves being a goat - we promise!

Caversham United’s answer to James Milner. Reliable and consistent, you can count on Amber!

SUMAYA ZAYADI

Attacking Midfielder

Nicknamed Zee; craziest feet you’ll see. Let her have the ball and there’s not a chance you’ll see it again! Cray-Zee.

SOPHIE ALI

Midfielder

Calmness personified. Sophie is the coolest head out on the pitch. Composure = 99.
Proudly sponsored by Samuel Giddings.

HOLLY SWAN

Centre Midfielder

The definition of “If you can’t beat them, join them”. Scored 2 against us in a pre-season defeat and we welcomed her with open arms. Already a club superstar!

RIA WALSH

Midfielder

Our Ri-Ri… No, seriously, don’t call her that! And don’t ask her to fill in between the sticks, either…!

SOLANGE SAMUEL 

Striker

A defender’s WORST nightmare. There will be tears.

TIFFANY NEWLAND

Striker

Catch her if you can! Makes Dina Asher-Smith look sluggish with her pace. Not what you want to face on a Sunday afternoon!
Proudly sponsored by Her Game Too.

STACEY BUTLER

Midfielder

The Midfield Maestro! Controls the game from the middle, loves a worldie pass. Kevin-de-Bruyne esque, you could say!
Proudly sponsored by James Merritt.
