Biographical Text

Trina started her footballing career at Tiverton Ladies in 1975, moving to Exeter Ladies in 1977. Originally a centre forward with Tiverton and Exeter, she changed to play as a defender. In 1981/82, Trina was player of the year and Team captain.
In 1982/83, Trina made her 100th appearance for Exeter LFC against Illogab in a WFA 3rd Round cup tie on the 5th December 1982. 

She played for both a regional and Western League representative side. Trina was still playing for Exeter Ladies in 1982/83. (The following was taken from an article in a programme in early 82/83)

"POSITION: Central defender
OCCUPATION: Journalist
CLUB HONOURS:
Team Captain, player of the year 81/82, player of the tournament at Llanedryn 81/82. Selected for Region al squad and Western League duties.
Trina first started her footballing career with Tiverton Ladies in 1975, as a centre forward player, she then saw the light and joined Exeter Ladies in 1977, still playing the centre forward position. But her talents shone through and she was discovered to be a highly valuable defender. This has been Trina's prime posi tion throughout her career with Exeter, although she has the adaptability to cover in most positions. Being Team Captain she is looked up to as one of the more consistent and mature players. Her ambition is to lead the team into the W.F.A. Cup Final and win! Trina's knowledge of football is vast, as in her full-time job she writes about Exeter City men's soccer team for the Express & Echo. Autographs will be signed after the match, if you are a collector."


As well as playing football she was also a sports reporter for the Express and Echo for many years, reporting on Exeter City.
