 Women's Football News 29 Jul 2008
Gilly chosen for Year Dot project - 29 Jul 2008 - Women's Football NewsYear Dot is a groundbreaking project from Channel 4, following a group of fifteen young people as they go through what they hope will be their life-changing year and Oaklands College's Arsenal Ladies Academy star, Gilly Flaherty, was chosen among thousands of entries in a gruelling four month process.
17-year-old Gilly, from Rotherhithe, joined the Academy in September 2007. The academy, which combines academic studies with football coaching, is based at Oaklands College Smallford Campus, and Gilly is a residential player. She is studying for a BTEC National Sport and Exercise Science Qualification.
Gilly is an extremely driven and committed young player having played at Arsenal since 2004. She was part of the Arsenal squad that won the quadruple in 2006-07 season, winning the UEFA Women's Cup, FA Women's Premier League, FA Women's Cup and the FA Women's Premier League Cup. She was also part of the Arsenal squad that made history by being the first team outside Germany or Scandinavia to win the UEFA Women's Cup.
The Year Dot project was launched on June 30th and as of now Gilly, along with fourteen others, will be continuously updating her progress through blogs, messages and videos, inviting people to give advice and share their own experiences.
Each Year Dot member has listed their goals for the next year so that followers can check out how they are progressing through their life changing years. Gilly's are to:
* Get into the starting 11 for Arsenal Ladies First Team
* Get selected for England in the Under-19 European Championship Finals
* Get selected for either England in the Under-17/Under-20 World Cup
* Graduate from college
* Get accepted to University
* Be in the running for FA Young Player of the Year

Gilly has created a profile video. She is also completing a written and video journal which details her day to day movements, how she's feeling and how she is progressing in meeting her goals.
On how it feels to be part of the project, Gilly said: "I'm really looking forward to doing the Year Dot project. I just want to show people that I am a normal teenage girl who's trying to combine studies with football. I really want to succeed in football and I hope that over the year people will be able to see me change, improve and grow as a person."
You can check out Gilly's page and progress on the Year Dot website at www.yeardot.co.uk. Gilly's latest movements will also be kept up to date on the Oaklands College website too.
