She has always loved the game of soccer and played for Barking Ladies FC, a senior women's side that has competed at Step 2 of English Women's Soccer for 10 years. Carly's leadership skills were recognized in 2013 when the club offered her a player/coach role for the 2013-14 season. This was a position she relished and lead the team to the County Cup Finals for the first time in a decade. After this, Carly was asked to join CK Basildon FC, which plays in the Premier League. After changing playing position she played for one year but then had to retire due to injury.
