In December 2022, Therese became the first player in the history of the club to sign for our senior women’s team. She had a successful debut year with United helping the team win the Avenir Sports All-Island Cup, even scoring in a penalty shoot out win in the semi-final. She has been a key figure for United all season with her defensive work and marauding runs forward. Therese Kinnevey will be a great asset to United in 2024.
