Sporting a scar on her forehead due to an old head injury, Umairah’s commitment and love for the Beautiful Game is clear.
A no-nonsense centre-back who wears her heart on her sleeve, the youngster models her game after Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk and is inspired to lead her team in a similar fashion.
Picking up the game at the age of five when she joined her brothers in a small community football club, Umairah never looked back, going on to play for her primary and secondary schools.
Her recipe for success is calming herself down with deep breathing and visualising how she plays in the dressing room before the game begins.
