They say from little things big things grow. Our Westfield Matildas are no exception. They all started out as little kids with big dreams. And thanks to a combination of hard work and talent, all of these players have gone on to achieve great things.
On World Children’s Day, we look back at where these Tiny Tillies started.
1. Katrina Gorry
Katrina Gorry was mini then, and Mini now.

Now Mackenzie Arnold rocks the gloves but back then she was rocking a red jumper and a fringe.
4. Caitlin Foord
Caitlin Foord has brought that big grin and joy with her from Sydney to North London.
5. Clare Polkinghorne
An easy one to guess, Clare Polkinghorne is calm presence team.
6. Ellie Carpenter
From Cowra to Lyon, Eliie Carpenter has grown up into one of the game's rising stars.
7. Sam Kerr
People will recognise Sam Kerr’s mischievous grin, especially from her Instagram stories.

In gingham and in green and gold, Emily van Egmond looks exactly the same.
