Former England youth international defender who joined the Lady Magpies in the summer of 2021.
After playing youth football with Sunderland RTC and Teesside RTC, and representing England under-15s on several occasions (her debut coming against Sweden at St. George's Park), the centre-back made her WSL1 debut for Sunderland Ladies against Notts County Women at the age of 17.
She went on to play for Middlesbrough Women before joining United, with her classy presence already making a big difference to the backline.
Away from football, Olivia recently graduated from university with a first-class honours in Clinical Psychology and is employed by mental health charity Sunderland Mind, working with individuals of varying ages who often suffer from loneliness, mental health problems or have additional needs.
On Thursdays, she organises and runs her own sports night within Sunderland Mind for youngsters aged seven and above, and also works for a company called Keep Active who work with children, many of which have additional needs.
