Susan Chuot is the first African player to make the Western Australia state women’s team. She was originally born in South Sudan but her family soon moved to Kenya to escape the war.
After her family moved to Australia, Chuot first played Australian Football at school, but her main passion was always soccer until she got involved at the Edmund Rice Centre, for young people of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, coaching their Indigenous soccer team. Chout was then invited to become the first female to play for the Lions, the boys’ football team, in 2011 and she even captained the team in 2012.
