Roop Kaur revealed that she is loving her time at London Bees after she officially joined the club at the start of the month. Kaur caught the attention of the football world when she did 1100 kick-ps at the age of 14. She achieved the feat on International Women’s Day. She has spent the last few years at QPR but recently decided to challenge herself and move to North London. Kaur is working with renowned talent developer John Ryan to realize her dream of becoming a professional footballer one day.
“It’s my second week training and it’s been brilliant so far, I’ve loved every minute of it,” Roop Kaur said after spending the last two weeks at London Bees. “I’ve been on an amazing journey with QPR and I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for me. I could have stayed and remained an important part of the team but I wanted to really test myself in a new environment.”
“The coaches and my new teammates have been really welcoming. There are quite a few girls who are new to the team like me so I guess we’re all kind of helping each other get settled, and we’re all looking forward to getting involved in some friendly games so we can see how we shape up as a team,” she added. “The facilities at The Hive are amazing, and we also have the U18s and the first team training on the pitches near us while we train, which is also pretty cool because it motivates you to really want to breakthrough.”
