INTERVIEW | Rebecca Holloway joins Blues Women

INTERVIEW:

REBECCA HOLLOWAY SAYS SHE'S ENJOYING LIFE AT BLUES AFTER RETURNING HOME TO ENGLAND AFTER FOUR YEARS IN AMERICA.

The centre-half admits it came as a bit of a surprise that she was snapped up by a Club of Blues standing so quickly after her collegiate career ended.

But her controlled and assured performances in the heart of the defence have shown that she is a good fit for Blues - and top-level competition here.

From Nailsea, the Somerset town just south of Bristol, Holloway was with Bristol Academy before heading over to the United States in 2015.

She majored in sports and exercise science at Cumberland University in Tennessee.

Holloway was a standout player for the Phoenix, captaining the side for two years and earning Mid-South Conference Player of the Season honours back-to-back.

She was also an All-American Honourable Mention by the NAIA.

Holloway then joined Nashville Rhythm in the Women’s Premier Soccer League before signing for Blues in July.

How do you assess the opening three games?
"I think we've done well and we have deserved more than we got from the first two games. I felt even with a few mistakes in there, we were on top of the other teams. So it was really good to finally get that win in the most recent game, against Everton. You could all see how much it meant to us by the way we celebrated."
