In her first interview as a Crystal Palace Women’s player, Lexi Potter discussed how it felt to become the nation’s youngest-ever professional female player as well as her excitement about continuing her growth in south London.

Before joining the Eagles on loan for the remainder of the season, the 17-year-old last weekend signed a contract outlining her professional conditions with her parent club Chelsea.

The announcement made headlines around the world and brought an end to a summer in which Potter, an aggressive midfielder who plays box-to-box, led England to the UEFA U17s Euros semifinals in Estonia.

Potter might play against Durham Women at the VBS Community Stadium on Sunday at 12:00 BST to make her Palace and professional debuts. Additionally, there will be a pre-game family entertainment and activity schedule starting at 11:00.

Potter grinned as he told Palace TV, “It’s been absolutely fantastic so far. Getting to know new people and the surroundings has been a lot of fun for me. I’m really anticipating the upcoming season.

Making history is an incredible feeling, but it only spurs me on to work more and, hopefully, inspire others who want to follow in my footsteps.

Coming to Palace has been different, but it has been beneficial for me personally and professionally. It will greatly aid in my maturation, and it’s healthy to simply be in unfamiliar circumstances and with unfamiliar people.

“I consider myself to be a highly dedicated player who works extremely hard and gives it their best. I put my all into whatever I do, and I constantly strive to be the greatest.
