Player Interview with Georgia Eastoe


Georgia (Georgie to her friends) Eastoe is one of the young stars of the Northern Tigers WSL side. Georgia is an attacking midfielder with a tough, bustling style of play. The kind of player all football lovers like to watch.
Georgia has been part of the Northern Tigers family for seven seasons. Last year Georgia won a club award celebrating her ?veteran? status. How old is Georgia? Just 16 years of age!
This is a young lady who appears to have a fine football future ahead of her.
Occupation: Student. I?m currently studying in Year 11 at St Leo?s Wahroonga. I also work one day a week at Lady Davidson Hospital in North Turramurra.
Representative honours: I?ve represented my school and diocese at both primary and high school level.
Which junior club did you play for? ; I played for Mt Colah and then Hornsby Heights when I was younger. Then I got scouted by Northern Tigers and have been with them ever since.
Why football? ; When I was little my sister started playing. My parents then enrolled me too. Football is fun. I enjoyed playing then and still do now. It?s great to test your skills, run with the ball and show what you can do.
Players you admire? ; I admire any player I come up against who gives a 100% effort. I?m not really a great watcher of the game otherwise.
Most respected opponent? ; I?d say Katie French from Southern NSW FC and Gillian Rosconi of Western NSW Panthers.
Interests outside of football? ; I love playing touch football. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and going to the beach. I love ANY sport!
Favourite meal before a game? ; I love cereal. I eat LOTS of it! I find that it gives me a lot of energy. Weet Bix is my favourite (is there a sponsorship deal out there for this girl with the makers of this cereal?). Any good, home cooked meal to build up the carbs is also good.
Who?d be your ideal dinner date? ; Paul Walker, the actor. He?s REALLY good looking!
Your favourite football memory? ; Definitely last season when our Under 16 Northern Tigers side made the Grand Final. We lost to Southern NSW but it was a great experience just to be a part of the Grand Final.
Teams to beat in the Arrive Alive NSW Women?s Super League? ; Illawarra Stingrays.
Thanks for your time Georgia. Good luck to you and your Northern Tigers team mates as you chase a semi final spot in the Arrive Alive NSW Women?s Super League.
