Katie was picked for the Millwall lionesses at age 10. She received a place in the first team at the age of 14.In her debut season Millwall won both the FA Women?s Cup and the FA premier league cup when she was only15.
she now plays for premiership side Charlton Athletic who she joined this season. She previousely played for premiership side Fulham f.c. who were the 1st professional team in Europe but due to funding problems they had to go semi- professional at the start of the 2003/20004 season she played in midfield wearing the number 6 shirt. She joined them in 2000 after leaving Millwall lionesses.
In 2002 Fulham won the FA cup and Katie was present in the match. Fulham also won the FA Cup last year but young Katie was not present as she fell pregnant with her son Harvey at the end of 2002.
In 2003 Katie was present when they won the charity shield, beating Doncaster Rovers-Belles 1-0 at Mansfield. It could have been impossible to maintain a successful streak but Katie has managed to keep it up and better herself.
At the age of 16 she made her debut for the England under-18s who she later on went on to captain. She attained her very first cap for the England senior squad at only 17 year?s of age.
Katie is now one of the most valid players in the England senior squad, playing either in deffence or midfield with shirt number 8 (previously 4). In 2002 she gained the award for nationwide international player of the year.
Katie is a valued player when it comes to women?s football in England she goes from strength to strength, gaining a win after win. She is said to be one of the best female footballers in the world. Let?s hope she can keep it up for years to come.
