Lincoln teenager Mya Webb has signed for Women’s Premier League side Leeds United Ladies.

The 17-year-old started playing football when she was just two-years old, attending a soccer tot session.

Now she will be hitting the dizzy heights of the third level in the women’s football pyramid – Women’s Premier League Northern Division One.

The teenager spent time with Lincoln Ladies Regional Talent Club and played for Doncaster Belles RTC in her final youth season in 2016/17 before the big move.

Mya’s talent was first spotted in her school years at Fosse Way Primary, where she impressed so much she was put into the boys’ team and put forward for trials with Lincoln City Girls academy.

The youngster’s rise continued when she joined the player development centre before attending trials for Lincoln Ladies Centre of Excellence.

Mya progressed from the Under-11s team through the years groups all the way to Under-15s, where she was trained by the likes of former Lincoln Ladies captain Casey Stoney MBE.

Mya trained twice a week with the academy, with games on a Saturday, but she didn’t stop there as she also joined Deano’s Pro Soccer Academy for extra training where she spent four years and also helped with some coaching after turning 16.
