Bio: 
 
Rhonda Jones is an established Scotland Women's international. At the time of writing she has an impressive seventy-eight caps and two goals to her name whilst representing her country. After a spell in the USA she has returned to skipper Hibernian. Under her captaincy Hibs beat much fancied Glasgow City en route to winning the Women's Unite Scottish Cup.
 
Now she answers five questions on his youth career for YFS...
 


1. Which clubs did you play for in your youth career?
I played for Motherwell Rovers from age 13-15 then onto Ayr United LFC from 16-21. I then left to the USA on scholarship to Florida Atlantic University. 
 
2. Who were the best players you played with and against during your youth career?
The best player I played with was Julie Fleeting in my Ayr United days. A true professional and down to earth girl. The toughest player I ever player against was Debbie McWhinnie when she player with Cumbernauld Cosmos, thankfully now she plays on the same team as me. I don't have to put up with her diving in the box any more!
 
3. Who were your role models as a young player?
My role model was Ally McCoist. Unfortunately I never emulated his scoring technique and was relegated to defence.
 
4. Who was your favourite coach at youth level?
My favourite coach was Hugh Flynn at Ayr United. We were promoted straight into the premier league in our first year together. He was heart and soul Ayr United and he was a fantastic guy. I also loved when Jim Fleeting was our National Team Coach. He was so inspirational.
 
5. If you had one piece of advice to today’s generation of youth football players, what would it be?
When I coach I always make sure players are working with both feet. Something I always regret is not training my weaker foot. To the young players of today I'd say, reach for the stars and never give up on your dreams... always give it your all with your heart on your sleeve and never ever give up, no matter what.
