IN recent months, life has.

IN recent months, life has changed dramatically for 16-year-old Welsh international and former Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper Rosie Lamprey, who carries the hopes of Wirral.

During a highly successful 2007-08 season the Thingwall girl broke into the Rovers first team and was rewarded by being given the most improved player award by the club.

She also represented Wales at both under-17 and 19 age groups, winning a total of six caps.

However, her international and club ambitions may have to be put on temporary hold because in the summer she took advantage of being offered a football scholarship to the USA.

The former Neston HS pupil now studies full time at Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia and will not be available for Wales, or anyone else this side of the Atlantic, for the foreseeable future.
