Academy star Kerfoot Wins Young Sportswoman Of The Year Award

Derby County Ladies U11 Black Socks player Jasmine Kerfoot has been recognised for her development at Derby County Ladies at her local regional sports awards.

Kerfoot was up against other young talents at the Chesterfield School Sports Partnership Award but it was the Ewe Rams player who won the young sportswoman of the year award.

Kerfoot was nominated by her Primary School for her achievements in football, athletics and cross country. The Cutthorpe Primary school student signed for the Ewe Rams in July last year and has made great progress in her development with the u11 black socks, who play in the Derbyshire League.

It’s a great achievement to be recognised amongst so much sporting talent. Jasmine is the second Derby County Ladies to be recognised this season following the first team goal keeper Leah Kellogg’s award at the Derbyshire Sports Awards.  

Jasmine’s coach Dom Anderson said ‘We are all super proud of Jasmine, she is a fantastic ambassador for girls sport and a joy to coach

Academy Director Dave Cholerton said “It’s brilliant to see another youngster get recognised for her talent in sport and we are proud to have Jasmine at our club.

“To get nominated in the first instance is just amazing but to then go on and win it is extra special and I know her parents are really proud of this achievement.

“We hope that this award can inspire Jasmine to carry on doing what she is doing and she is also a great ambassador for the club and many of our other players will look at her and think they can do the same.
