The Great Britain Women's Football Squad has been selected to compete at the World University Games in Bangkok, Thailand with the majority of the squad made up of FA Women's Premier League players.
The BUSA Champions 2007, Loughborough, have provided seven players for the games with Kylie Davies, Beth Bailey, Shelly Cox, Bonnie Horwood, Georgie Adams, Nicole Emmanuel and Dani Bird all being part of the squad. Nicole Emmanuel scored the opening goal in the BUSA Championship Final at Loftus Road in May and was a FA Premier League Cup runner-up in 2007 with Leeds United. Nicole has also experienced the big stage with Leeds United competing in the Final of the FA Women's Cup in 2006 and playing at the UEFA Under-19 Championship Finals in Hungary 2005. Loughborough team-mate Georgie Adams will be happy for the distraction as her club Charlton look to secure their future in the game. Adams has been a part of the English Universities Team and previously played for Chelsea, winning the Southern Division title with them in 2005. Beth Bailey plays for Nottingham Forest and was part of the English set up at the UEFA Under-19 Championships in 2005. Kylie Davies has made her way up the English age ranks playing for the national team at Under-17, 19, 21 and 23 levels; she is another Premiership player plying her trade at Chelsea.
BUSA Championship 2007 runner-up Charlotte Sole (Brighton) is the youngest ever goalkeeper to play in the top league. Playing for Brighton and Hove Albion, Charlotte has also been apart of the English Universities set up and is an Arsenal Academy Graduate. Faye Cardin and Gwennan Harries got to the BUSA Championship Semi Finals this year with UWIC and will both look to impress in Bangkok. Harries recently joined Bristol Academy and has 11 caps (3 Goals) for the Welsh senior squad after obtaining 21 caps as captain for the under-21 squad. Cardin is a Birmingham City player and played for England in the Under-21 Nordic Cup competition.
The remaining squad members are made up of Laura Barnes Ellis (Liverpool John Moores), Donnique Sinclair-Chambers (London Metropolitan), Katherine McKenna (London South Bank), Kerrie Manley (Manchester Metropolitan), Sheuneen Ta (University of Miami), Rania Ramadan (MMU Cheshire), Helen Lander (Hertfordshire) and Dunia Susi (Westminster). Sinclair-Chambers is the promising young centre back at Charlton Athletic who played 90 minutes at left back in the Women's FA Cup Final in 2005, going on to claim a winner's medal. Susi, a late addition to the squad, is a regular for Chelsea FC and will be the only competitor in the GBR delegation from Westminster University.
