I introduce Megan as a young local sportsperson, who works tirelessly to inspire the young people of Lincolnshire. I have known Megan since teaching her as a 6 year old. Even at that early age she was a very keen footballer, always out on the school field with the boys!! Megan is a qualified sports teacher who puts her training to excellent use with Lincoln Ladies Football Club. She has been with them since their foundation in 1996, playing regularly in the team which now plays in the newly-formed WSL. Megan drafted the successful bid which allowed them to join and she encourages young people to watch the matches, become ballgirls and be inspired towards becoming professional footballers themselves. Megan works tirelessly for the young people of Lincolnshire, especially encouraging girls to play football, through organising and leading coaching sessions in over 30 schools to date, and now at summer football camps which currently attract over 80 children. Please read the club's website for more details of their Community work - all Megan's inspiration (www.lincolnladiesfc/community.com) Pertaining to the Olympics Megan has set up a link with the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership called Quest for Gold, which is helping with the Olympic build up for the youth of Lincolnshire. Megan is an inspirational and positive role model for the young footballers of Lincolnshire and I implore you please to seriously consider her as a torch bearer. Thank you.
