Katie preparing to step up to top flight

Katie preparing to step up to top flight - 26 Jul 2004 - Women's Football NewsKatie Holtham is on the verge of making a big decision which will decide the direction that her budding career is going to take. The talented midfielder will be joining a National Division club from Lincoln City and, after appearing for Bristol Rovers in a friendly against Portsmouth, she revealed to Women's Soccer Scene that two teams are vying for her signature.
"I've always wanted to play in the Premiership, it's my aim," says Katie. "I know it's a big step up for me but I'm looking forward to the challenge and hoping it can improve my game and affect the team I eventually sign for.
"At the moment I am unsure between two teams - Bristol Rovers and another club who want to sign me and I haven't actually put pen to paper yet. I want to make the step up but not to join a team for just a year, I want to join a team where I can commit for the next five or ten years and have aims and ambitions to be successful, and one day win the Premiership which is obviously everyone's dreams. I'm not saying Bristol Rovers can't do that, but what intrigues me is that they're a club that wants to go places and are bringing in players that are capable of doing that."
Whichever club she decides to join, it is going to be a busy season for Katie as she will be part of the England under-19 team which will be hoping to reach the UEFA Championships next summer after narrowly missing out last season. "We had a bit of a low time last season when we didn't qualify. We felt a bit hard done by with our group but that's football, you have to move on. The next qualifying round in September will be held in England so that's a big bonus for us! I'm really looking forward to it and I don't want to be losing again, so hopefully we'll get it right this sure and I'm sure we will. After just coming back from Finland with the under-19s, I've seen the calibre of the players they've brought in and they are awesome."
Last season did end very happily for Katie though, as she captained the England under-19 side for the first time in their end of season friendly with Sweden at Solihull. "It's a dream come true to step on to the pitch and lead the team out," she smiles, "at whatever level, under-19s or seniors, it's just the same thing - it was awesome. I hope I can keep that now and the team can be successful, if we prepare right I really think we can compete with the best."
