Great to see KPSC Girls and Mums feature in an article by ABC journalist Erin Handley.
It outlined how our girls are inspired by Matilda’s Sam Kerr.
A small snippet.
“From the pitch at soccer training in Melbourne’s north-west, Keilor Park teammates Sian and Clea are buzzing with excitement about the Women’s World Cup.
Like many Australians, the young footballers idolise Matildas star Sam Kerr.
But it’s not just a love of the game that they have in common with the Chelsea striker.
“She’s my favourite player. She is really inspiring, and her background is also Indian, which makes her more inspiring to me,” Clea, 11, whose mother is Indian, said.
Sian, 13, who also has an Australian Indian background, agreed.
“At first I didn’t really see many people who were from my culture playing. And when I saw Sam Kerr, it just made me really happy to know that I could also achieve that goal,” she said.
Also our favourite Go Mum Mia Tran also features.
