Leeds United Ladies captain Cath Hamill talks to us about her pre-match rituals, favourite films and inspirations..
We're talking to the Leeds United Ladies in our new question and answer feature.. first up is Ladies captain Cath Hamill!
Do you have any pre-match rituals?
I don’t really have any rituals as such but I always put my earphones in and listen to music on the way to a match to help me get into the zone.
What inspires you to play football?
Winning games inspires me. Just turning up to training after a stressful day at work and training with all the team inspires me.
What’s your pre and post match meal?
Before a 2pm game I usually eat something like beans on toast with a banana and then after the match it will be something like chicken and vegetables.
Who’s your best friend on the team?
We all get on so well so I’d say we’re all best friends!
Do you like any other sports?
I generally enjoy watching most sports but I really enjoy watching gymnastics and tennis when there are big championships on.
What’s your favourite TV programme?
I don’t really get much time to watch TV but when I do it would be watching football at the weekend!
What do you like doing in your spare time?
I don’t have much spare time at the moment because I’m quite a busy person but when I do it would be spending time with friends.
Who got you into playing football?
My friend actually asked me to go to her football training sessions and ever since I’ve just loved it.
What’s your favourite film?
It would be Fast and the Furious films and Elf at Christmas!
What does it mean to play for Leeds United?
It’s always been my childhood club so it’s an absolute honour every week to walk out representing Leeds United every week.
