Getting to know you: Bristol City striker Millie Farrow
The on-loan forward reveals the dressing room joker, biggest moaner and more at the Vixens
With the 2016 FA WSL campaign fast approaching it’s time to learn a little more about our teams.
Here – in the first in a series of pre-season features – striker Millie Farrow, on loan from Chelsea to Bristol City for the full season, lifts the lid on life at the Stoke Gifford Stadium.
What was your highlight of last season?
Scoring my first goal for Chelsea was a great feeling. It was against Bristol City, so I’ve had to keep quiet about it since I came here.
Did you have a low point?
It’s hard to keep your head right when you train full-time, then come matchday you are on the bench and know you will probably not come on. Hopefully that will change this season with Bristol City.
What are you looking forward to most about the 2016 season?
Hopefully scoring a lot of goals for Bristol City and getting promoted. We have a lot of new players, but I don’t see any reason why we cannot get promoted. There is a lot of talent in this squad.
Who is the one to watch at Bristol City this season?
Chloe Arthur. She is very creative and strong on the ball. You will do well to get it off of her! She works extremely hard in training too.
Who is your best friend in the squad?
I moved here with Jodie Brett, but we knew each other even before we signed for Chelsea. We went to different schools, but with both lived in Fareham and met when we were 14. We have been friends ever since.
Who is the dressing room joker?
Rosella Ayane, also here from Chelsea, acts like a massive idiot all the time! There’s lots of banter from her in training and she never fails to bring a smile to your face.
Who moans the most?
I live with Chloe Arthur and two of the other players and she is always hungry or “fatigued”. It’s the word I hear her say the most: “fatigued”.
Who is guilty of never putting their phone down?
We all are! They are not banned at the training ground, but maybe they should be because I don’t think there are any of us who could honestly say we don’t look at our phones too much.
