Hannah signs full time deal
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 14 Dec 2018
Birmingham City goalkeeper Hannah Hampton has penned professional terms with the club. She has signed a contract to the end of the 2019-20 season.
The England Under-19 international is considered one the game's brightest prospects and she has appeared in the first team this season, including last Sunday's WSL match against Manchester City.
"I'm really delighted to have signed," she said. "Since I came here at Under-16 it has been one of my dreams to sign professionally with the club."
The move by Blues has been in the pipeline for some time but came to fruition recently. "It was after the West Ham United game, after my birthday really. Marc Skinner said he was looking to give me a contract because I had earned it.
"So it was a really nice birthday present."
Hampton, who turned 18 last month, said she believed the application she has shown helped her secure the contract.
"I have just had to train the best I can (to get to this point). You are not going to train perfectly every single day. It's about your attitude and reaction to disappointment and stuff.
"And that was a problem for me to begin with, but I feel like I am improving, and the Club can see that.
"Training with Ann has improved me so much that I have become a better player and I feel that has also helped me to get to where I am."
The influence of Ann-Katrin Berger has undoubtedly aided Hampton's development. "She is a world class ‘keeper and to train with her day in, day out, you learn so much. And you see how she does her training and how you can take some of what she does and use it. Even the smallest details she picks up on and helps me."
Hampton said she still has ‘a lot to improve on' and by listening to and being helped and coached by Skinner and Tony Elliott, Blues Women Goalkeeper Coach, ‘they will help me be the best I can'.
"This level is the level I want to play at week in, week out," said Hampton, who began playing for Villarreal after the family moved to Spain and returned to join Stoke City Ladies, where Skinner drafted her in from. "I do feel comfortable in the WSL, once I had a few games.
"If Marc puts his faith in me I can't be scared to perform. I have to take the opportunity.
"He has been amazing. He has always said from day I joined the Club that if you train better you will play. He has always put his faith in youngsters; Connie Scofield when she was coming through, Shania Hayles and myself.
"He is not afraid to play the people who deserve a spot."
Hampton said her immediate aims were: "This season, getting more game time and experience and improving week in, week out. The consistency of performances.
"It would be nice if we could win some cups, win a league or progress into the Champions League. That would be amazing.
"The whole team are really dedicated to win something. Especially with Marc as Manager; we have not wanted anything as much as this season.
"In the long run I'd like to get myself as a number one ‘keeper in the WSL and to progress through the England age groups."
