Daughter of a former Gurkha soldier, Ale was a regular at Aston Villa since she was 8 years old, and made her official debut at 16. She received her first professional contract after turning 18 in late 2019.

 

With regular seasons ending across different sports, tons of teams have been making trades and signing in new players to strengthen their roster.
