History was made at Chichester City Ladies when Loulou Robson made her senior debut. She started with Chichester City girls in their first youth team at under-13 level and has been trained throughout the years by coaches, many of whom are senior ladies players, including Elizabeth Ogden and Emma Alexandre.
Robson plays for the under-16s but has been training with the senior squad recently and when she turned 16 in January, first-team boss Liam Greenfield signed her straight up.
For many of the volunteers at the club it was a special moment as it is an example of what they have all been working hard to achieve.
Robson came on as a sub, replacing Charley Wilson-Blakely and she enjoyed every second.
The club hope she is the first of many to come through our system and continue to progress in the ladies game.
* All Chi City ladies and girls’ teams were without games last weekend.
This Sunday, the under-16s play Crawley at 10.30am at Sidlesham FC. The development squad follow them at 2pm versus Long Lane and City’s first team are away to Basingstoke.
