After leaving the Lincolnshire FA Girls’ Centre Of Excellence last season, Frankie signed for Nottingham Forest Ladies’ Seniors Squad and after a few successful games in the Reserves, and impressing the coaches at training, she made her first team debut on Sunday.

Forest played away at Blackburn Rovers in the FA Women’s Premier League Cup. Frankie put in a very good performance but the team lost 3-1.

Being aged only 16 and still at school at Carre’s Grammar, she is one of the youngest players to play for Nottingham Forest ladies’ first team.
