Yeovil Town Intermediate player, Terri Trowbridge, has been selected to be part of the flag bearing party at the UEFA Champions League Final at Cardiff City Stadium, on Saturday.
Terri is a Yeovil Town local and has been part of the club for many years, having played for all teams since the age of seven. However, since joining the Army almost five years ago as a Human Resources Specialist, she has found it hard to commit and therefore has played one season for the Intermediate team.
The versatile player, who can play in centre midfield or full back, was part of the Intermediate team's recent successes in gaining another promotion and being crowned South West Women's League Champions and Pat Sowden Cup winners.
The 24-year-old also plays for the British Army football team and the Combined Services football team. The selection for the fantastic opportunity of being a flag bearer at the Champions League Final came through the Army FA and Trowbridge was lucky enough to be offered the honour.
On being selected, Terri said: "To be asked to be part of the flag bearing party is a huge honour.
"Not only do I feel I'm representing my country, my sport and the British Army, but I also feel I'm representing the football club I've been a part of since I was 7 years old.
"I'm very proud to be a part of the event and grateful for this opportunity."
Another women's footballer, who is a member of the army, received a similar honour at the SSE Women's FA Cup Final earlier this month, Yvette Kemp was part of the presentation ceremony following Manchester City's victory over Birmingham City at Wembley Stadium.
