Ellie has fun with the Junior Matildas

Ellie gives us a little look into her time away in Tonga, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands as physiotherapist to the Junior Matildas on their #PacificStepUp Tour.

Forty-seven players and staff took seven flights to five countries, all in the space of two weeks. The trip was packed to the brim with training, games, travel and cultural experiences. It was incredible to see the passion these nations have for football (soccer). The hope is that their visit has helped to inspire more women in the Pacific Islands to play football.

The team had three convincing wins against U19 national teams from Tonga, Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands during the tour. This was a fantastic opportunity for the girls prepare for the upcoming Asian Cup and to experience a variety of different cultures along the way.
