Cara Hopkinson

Defender


One of the quiet players of the squad yet one of the most versatile, Cara puts in a solid performance wherever asked to play. Was another from United's multi-championship winning junior side that culminated with the U18s title in 2013, playing anywhere across the defence. Whilst with the U18s Cara also played Sundays for the reserves, where she was used as a striker to such effect that she scored 11 goals in 11 games during 2011-12. That same season saw Cara's debut for the first team, becoming a regular two seasons later. Played 20 games in United's defence last season and for the last 10 minutes of the season was allowed upfront where she promptly scored twice!
