2 Abby Holmes

Abby Holmes

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.
