On the Bench with Emily Frost “Frosty”
Team: Adamstown Rosebud JFC
Position: Fullback or Wing
Starting our season of Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) player profiles with none other than the buds’ Emily Frost!
Emily began playing soccer when she was 14 years old for Merewether United in their under 16s squad. Emily continued to play for the now rival club until 2012, the same year she debuted in her first Herald WPL season. Following her 2012 season with Merewether, Emily moved on to play for the Adamstown Rosebud, where she played for the under 18s team for two seasons before her selection in Bud’s 1st-grade squad in 2015.
Emily, now 21 years old, has played two seasons with Adamstown and is well and truly a part of the Bud’s family, in fact, Frosty confidently holds the 2016 Minor Premiership win as one of her career highlights.
This year, Frosty said the Bud’s are hoping to prove their critics wrong as the team places focus on playing good quality football. A personal goal for the big-hearted dynamic player is that Frosty would like to see herself place more balls into the back of the net this season!
WPL PLAYERS PLAYER:
Frosty holds a lot of admiration for fellow teammate and captain, Clare Cummings. “I have a lot of respect for Clare,” said Emily. “I’m glad I’ve never played against her since she never gives up and manages to lift a team just with her presence on the field”, Frosty continued.
OFF THE FIELD:
Emily finished her degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Newcastle last year and is now completing her honours this year where she is studying female infertility. When Frosty isn’t playing the game she loves, she often found reading books, playing netball and catching up with her friends!
