After representing her county earlier this month, Jazmin now has her sights set on playing for Blackburn Rovers.

Jazmin admits it will be hard leaving Lostock Hall Junior FC but she has to take the next step in her football career.

The Year 8 footballer has been at Lostock Hall JFC for six years and trains every Wednesday with them and has this season won their respective League and have just been crowned Lancashire County Cup Champions.

However next season, the central midfielder has made the difficult choice after a successful training period with Blackburn Rovers FC Regional Talent Centre to leave her team with the aim to be successful in obtaining a contract with Blackburn.

This has also been helped by a number of impressive performances for Lancashire recently.

She selected for Lancashire Schools FA and they won the English Schools Northern Counties Under 14s Cup final against Northumberland at Leyland.

And she also played for Lancashire in the final of the English Schools National Cup at Stoke City FC against Essex, which Lancashire lost on penalties.

“It was tough to get selected for Lancashire,” said  Jazmin. “There were 100s at the trials and then they selected 21 and it was a great honour to be part of that, never mind play as well.

“It’s exciting to play for your county, especially at a ground like Stoke, and we all got a special county tie.

“If I get signed by Blackburn Rovers for next season. It involves a lot more training, three hours twice a week, but it is something I am looking forward to.

“I have been at Lostock Hall for all my playing career so I will be sad to leave but I have to take the next step in my career.  I want to play for England one day.”
