Dionne Lennon created women's football history on Sunday when she became the first female player to score a goal at the new Wembley Stadium.
Dionne, who plays for Millwall Lionesses, appeared for Docklands Ladies in the FA Umbro Fives tournament and gave her side the lead in their opening match against the North East side called How Do You Eat Yours.
She was unaware of her achievement at the time and admitted afterwards: "I didn't actually know that I was the first person to score here and I don't even remember it much, but I'm very proud."
It was perhaps a little ironic that Dionne herself is not actually a striker. "I play at right back (for Millwall)," she smiled, "so I don't get to be in front of goal too often - well, my own goal but not the opponents' so it's great."
Aside from her goal, Dionne enjoyed the whole experience of the day which ended with her team going on to reach the Final where they lost out 3-1 to Watford. "It's lovely," she said, "we got to go into the dressing rooms early this morning and got the whole experience of Wembley - I mean, Wembley Stadium, you can't really go wrong can you!
"At the start, we came out of the tunnel with the fireworks going off and the national anthem as well, it was brilliant."
