Macey Fraser established herself as a regular for the Phoenix reserves after returning from Costa Rica and played under Katie Barrott in 2023.

She was rewarded with a three-year professional deal at the end of the season.

“It’s a really cool feeling to sign my first pro contract,” she said. “I’m so grateful to Paul for giving me the opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started and do as well as I can for the Phoenix.

“When I came into the academy Paul sat down with me and asked what I wanted to do, and I said be a professional footballer. He said ‘okay, let’s do it’.

“He’s been such a big help to me and my skills as a player and as a person.

“My coach this year Katie Barrott has also been a huge help for me, as has Issy Coombes, our sports scientist.

“In fact all of the staff at the academy have helped me so much along my journey and I’m grateful to all of them for what they’ve done for me.”
