Interviewing Shauna Duffy about her footballing journey that includes Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool, Dubai, Shrewsbury Town and now, The New Saints

The New Saints recently announced that Shauna Duffy had joined the club as head of women and girls’ football.

Taking the opportunity this week to catch up with Shauna, we sat in the stand behind the goal at Park Hall.

Born and bred in Wigan, Shauna comes from a Latics-supporting family and she was a season ticket holder at DW Stadium prior to getting involved in football herself.

Initially playing the game, as a centre-half she was wearing blue and white but not that of her beloved Wigan Athletic, as she was signed by Blackburn Rovers.

Disappointingly, an injury brought her career on the pitch to an abrupt end.
