Being open and honest about her story led Ruth Fox to appear on Ultimate Goal, but the experience has given her so much more in return.
The TV show Ultimate Goal was a six-part reality series shown on BT Sport which showcased 31 women who were hoping to make it through to play in a final match and showcase their skills in front of agents and scouts.
