LOWRI Walker has targeted a place in the Welsh squad.

The 21 year old from Aberystwyth has been playing football since she was four years old and enjoyed a stellar universities career before joining ambitious Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.

The Wolves women’s side currently compete in the third tier of the English Women’s Football League pyramid with aspirations for promotion next season with Walker at the heart of their midfield.

Walker is loving life in the Black Country having graduated from the University of Wolverhampton and now embarking on a career as a qualified sports scientist.

Walker has joined MMP-NL Mid Wales League Two side Borth United as sports massage and sport scientist with the aim of helping the Uppingham Field club achieve their objectives next season.

“I love coaching and have done many hours of volunteering during my school days and university to help increase girls and women’s participation in football,” said Walker who began her career with Shrewsbury Town.

The youngster travelled more than 90 minutes to Shropshire for training and matches before the the club lost its licence with Walker moving on to Aston Villa.

Walker has since become a key part of Wolves’ bid to join English football’s elite.

“I love every second of it,” said Walker.

Walker hopes to emulate her successful universities which saw her lead Wolverhampton to the BUCS Cup.

However a Welsh call up remains her ultimate aim.

Walker represented England at university level, even netting a hat-trick, against the country of her birth.

Walker said: “When I was younger I always spent time in the regional set up for Wales and went on a few camps up until the age of 16 but am yet to get a full cap.

“It is still one of my ambitions to play for my country.”
