After the Whistle Blows

Rachel Breton has written an extraordinary three-part column called ‘After the Whistle Blows’, in which the Sky Blue FC player explores the issues, emotions and tough decisions that soccer players and all athletes face when they’re forced to retire from the sport that shaped them. In the third installment, she takes a look at the story of former #UVAWSOC standout Sinead Farrelly who retired at the young age of 27 due to injuries she sustained from a car crash. Do yourself a favor and give this compelling tale a read.
