Our latest video interview is up now, and this time its with Harriet Scott, a professional footballer playing for Reading Ladies & Republic of Ireland. Harriet plays as a defender for Reading, and has had a successful time at the club so far, earning promotion into Women’s Super League 2 (WSL2), before winning WSL2 to help Reading into the top flight of the women’s game. In addition to a promising domestic career to date, Harriet has also enjoyed success at international level with the Republic of Ireland, for whom she represented at the World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago, where they reached the quarter-finals, and making the semi-finals at the European Championships.
Harriet’s football career to date is perhaps slightly different to the norm in that she took a three-year break in order to train at university to become a qualified physiotherapist. During our interview with Harriet she discusses the demands of the physiotherapy course she studied, including the amount of contact hours at universities and the placements that she participated in. Despite demands of Harriet’s physiotherapy course, she emphasises how rewarding the experience was, especially in terms of the placements which improved her practical skills as a physiotherapist while studying at university.
