Sophie Richards




Date of birth


Sophie joined Shrewsbury Town Ladies at the start of the 2019-20 season. She previously played in the Shropshire Girls leagues for Worthen Juniors for two seasons and Shrewsbury Up & Comers, whilst also representing her school team at Meole Brace from Year 7 through to Year 11.

Being a relatively late starter to playing football, and one of the youngest members of the team, Sophie is extremely proud of the opportunity to play for her home town. Especially in that she has been welcomed into the squad by a superb group of teammates, whom she is enjoying the opportunity to play alongside and learn from. 

For Sophie, football has proven to be her main interest, and whether playing or supporting, she devotes much of her free time to ‘the beautiful game’. Sophie is very enthusiastic about women’s football and is honoured to be part of the Shrewsbury Town Ladies squad; especially how much it has developed in recent years and the potential that it has for the future.
