Cliftonville Ladies had been expecting to be savouring the cut and thrust of the new Danske Bank Women’s Premiership season by now but, with football currently in lockdown, they find themselves playing the same waiting game as everyone else at the Club.
The sport’s suspension does, however, present us with an opportunity to get to know the players who will be donning the Red shirt during the campaign ahead and cliftonvillefc.net today continues a new weekly series profiling the team’s star performers – with Leah McEvoy taking centre stage on this occasion.
