Demi shortlisted for top award
Oxford United Women's fantastic progress has been recognised with goalkeeper Demi Lambourne being nominated for Sportswoman of the Year at the prestigious Oxfordshire Sports Awards.
Demi, 19, joined Oxford's Centre of Excellence at Under 15 level after a previous spell with Reading. She spent three years at the United CoE before progressing into the first team and becoming Oxford's number one.
Demi's form in WSL 2 has seen her receive international call ups for the England under 19 squad where she has flourished.
She told us:
"It is a fantastic thing for Oxford United Women to receive this nomination. We've done really well as a team and I am shocked and really proud to have been put forward. It's recognition for all the hard work that the coaches, staff and players put in, and another great reward for everyone at the club."
