Sunderland Association Football Club Current Players
2 Abby Holmes@Abby_holmes_2
Abby is a traditional defender who prides herself on her northern roots.
Her tough tackling and no-nonsense approach made her a key figure in the Sunderland side that won the FA Women’s Premier League and the FAWSL 2.
Holmes is also known for her desire to get forward - most notably when she scored the winner against Millwall to secure the Premier League title a few seasons ago.
The one-time secondary school PE teacher has since turned professional following Sunderland’s promotion to the FAWSL 1.
Did you know? Abby’s favourite television show is Coronation Street.
