Tyler Toland: Chasing the dream

It's a weekend of festivities for Tyler Toland, who celebrates her 19th birthday and one-year anniversary at City!

The Republic of Ireland starlet joined City in the summer of 2019 - one day after her 18th birthday - and has savoured every second of her first 12 months in Manchester.

The highly-rated teenager has thrived alongside top international talent and says she has already recognised rapid improvement in her game.

“It’s all about development,” she said. “I knew at the start I wouldn’t go straight in to play and I was prepared to wait a year or two, training day in, day out with the best players in the world. I can see it’s helped me massively as a player.

“Seeing those players who have progressed through the youth set-up and how they started out, knowing they maybe didn’t play at the start, it helps you to be patient and put the work in.

“The players have told me to keep at it and that it will happen for me if I keep working hard every day. Everybody has to start somewhere and in this professional environment, if you put the work in, you will get the opportunity.”
