Demi and Riva shortlisted for Young Woman of Achievement award
Two of Oxford United Women’s talented young squad have been shortlisted for the Sue Ryder 2016 Southern Women of Achievement Awards.
Goalkeeper Demi Lambourne and defender Riva Casley are rivals for the Young Woman of Achievement awards, presented by the Sue Ryder charity at their awards ceremony on Friday March 11th.
Demi has been with the club throughout its rise to WSL2 and capped a great season which saw her called into the England Under 20 squad by winning the Oxfordshire Sportswoman of the year award.
Riva has followed in Demi’s footsteps with call ups to the England under 17 squad, and a place in the side for this summer’s side against Sweden, Switzerland and France.
Manager Les Taylor said:
“It’s further recognition for two very talented young women who had very bright futures in football.”
