Adelaide United defender Charlotte Grant says the Women’s Talent Identification Camp based in Canberra has been extremely beneficial.
Grant is one of 23 girls in the camp which is aimed at providing the chance for some of the country’s most promising female footballers to be assessed by the Westfield Matildas’ coaching staff.
“Camp is going really well,” Grant told FFA Media.
“It’s such an honour to be a part of such experienced staff and players and I feel like I’m already learning so much.”
The 19-year-old spoke highly of the training camp and its importance for developing her game further in the hope of representing the Westfield Matildas.
Grant currently has six caps with the Young Matildas and is determined to make the next step.
“This camp is really important to me because it’s exposing me to the senior environment,” she said.
“And it’s improving my game on the mental side as well of how to prepare for senior national camps, and I think that will be really important going into Matildas camp if I hopefully have that opportunity one day.”
Grant is not the only Reds player selected with Chelsie Dawber and Annalee Grove both receiving call-ups.
She said training with both teammates and rival players of other clubs has been enjoyable.
“There’s a few W-League teammates here and some competitors as well,” the full-back continued.
“But it’s great to be on the same team for now and can’t wait to come up against them in the W-League season.”
Since making her Westfield W-League debut for Adelaide in 2018, Grant has accumulated 23 appearances.
