Bio: 
 
Eilish McSorely is our youngest ever My Youth Career featured player, at just 17 years old. However, despite her tender age, she still without a doubt has a story to tell. 
 
Eilish has played for Scotland at Under 15, Under 17 and is now an integral part of the Scotland Under 19 squad.
 
She made her debut in the Glasgow City first team two years ago and has already played in four Champions League matches for the club. With the City First team she has won two Premier League Championships, one League Cup and one Scottish Cup.
 
Eilish answers five questions on her youth career for YFS...
 


1. Which clubs did you play for in your youth career?
I played for Girvan Boys Club from the age of six until twelve. I then moved on to play for Ayr Utd GFC u17 and Kilmarnock LFC u17. 

2. Who were the best players you played with and against in your youth career?
I played with a player at Ayr and Kilmarnock called Danielle Bunyon, good player with a sweet left foot. Played against I would need to pick a player I thought was the hardest to play against at my youth and that would be Sarah Crilly, she is a whippet!

3. Who were your role models as a young player?
I loved watching Henrik Larsson when I was growing up. 

4. Who was your favourite coach at youth level? 
I would say it would have to be one of my first coaches Lenny Ship at Girvan Boys Club, he always got the best out of the players. 

5. If you had one piece of advice to give to today's generation of youth football players, what would it be? 
Enjoy every bit of your experience! Work hard and keep your eye on your goal!
