We have such exciting New Year’s news. This just in: Jenny Simmons is now a lace.
In December at the Hackney Laces Staff Chirstmas Party, we successfully tricked Jenny into becoming the fifth member of the Hackney Laces Management team.
Jenny spent her teenaged years at the National Sports Academy getting super good at football before going to America on a Soccer Scholarship to play and study. Not only is she a great footballer, she’s a level one coach. And above all, a really lovely and funny person.
When we had our first women’s match on December 1st, Jenny played for Hackney Laces alongside some of our girls. After the game, all the girls came up to the rest of the coaches and said “Who is she, can she stay?” and we said “yes, give us some time and she’ll be all ours”. And now she is. YESSSSSS.
