The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

ENG­LAND U19s goal­keeper Demi Lam­bourne is set to ben­e­fit from a gov­ern­ment scheme that will al­low her to train on a full-time ba­sis with club side Ox­ford United as well as con­tinue with her ed­u­ca­tion.

Full-time con­tracts are few and far be­tween at Women’s Su­per League 2 clubs, but the 19-year-old has been nom­i­nated for Sport Eng­land’s Tal­ented Ath­lete Schol­ar­ship Scheme, ef­fec­tively giv­ing her just that.

She said:“It will al­low me to be the best player I can be by mean­ing that I can fo­cus on both full-time train­ing and my ed­u­ca­tion. It’s a good op­tion for plenty of women’s foot­ballers.”
