The US-born footballer has said that she’s delighted women’s football is getting a bigger push on social media and more efforts to increase supporter attendance at matches.
“You can definitely tell the strides that the club and the league as a whole are trying to make, with exposure and getting people to games and promoting it on social media,” Starr said.
Starr also commented on the recent appointment of Ruth Fahy as CEO for Galway WFC.
Fahy became the first female CEO in the Women’s National League.
