Featuring an interview with Birmingham City forward, Veatriki Sarri, and footballer and surgeon Nadia Nadim, plus more
Welcome to the inaugural issue of Further, a new magazine dedicated to putting professional women in sport front and centre.
Further champions the outstanding achievements of sportswomen and provides a platform for sport topics often not making the headlines in mainstream media.
This issue we dive deep into the inspirational story of Nadia Nadim, an Afghan refugee who became a surgeon while playing for Denmark’s Fortuna Hjørring football team (p.7-8). Our cover star, Birmingham City forward Veatriki Sarri, chats about her journey from a relative newcomer in English football to a regular starter for her club (p.10-13).
Our opinion columnist, James Skeldon, argues that the Welsh women’s rugby team deserve professional contracts on page 14, while Megan Gaen highlights the sportswomen fighting back on sexist uniforms on page 16.
We look inside Exeter Chiefs Women’s kit bag (p.19), plus we unravel the six worst injuries in women’s sport (p.20).
On our What’s On page (p.22) you can find out everything that is happening in women’s sports this month.
We hope you enjoy it and stick around until the final whistle.
