Grace is a 22 year old entrepreneur who launched her business, MissKick, in response to her experiences of being a female footballer.
As a young girl, Grace spent her football career playing for Liverpool before making the move to Manchester City when she was 17. Although a professional career in football wasn’t pursued, it’s still a big part of Grace’s life, and she continues to play now for Chorley FC Women. Through the MissKick brand, Grace hopes to challenge the perception that football is just a ‘boys’ sport and inspire more girls to get involved in the game.
Also, for every tshirt or hoodie they sell, they donate £1 back into girls grassroots football and help to support local initiatives by funding kit or training equipment. Although she has been juggling her business alongside her Psychology degree, Grace has already began to make an impact with girls going crazy all over the country for MissKick. She talks all about her football career, her MissKick journey so far.
