Goalkeeper Helen joined the Lady Black Cats in 2004 and progressed through the club’s Centre of Excellence.

Helen cites teammates Steph Bannon and Gemma Wilson as the best she’s played with in her time at the club, with the trio spending almost 15 years of their playing careers together.

‘Aldo’, as she is affectionately known amongst her team-mates, works as an energy consultant away from football and she is one of multiple Lady Black Cats to have been recognised at youth level by England.
