Rachel Panting Biography

Last updated 15 Dec 2020

Having played at the likes of Maidenhead United, Portsmouth and Lewes FC in the past, Rachel Panting is one of the more experienced individuals in Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side.

An evidential review officer during the week, Panting lists her parents as her biggest role models, saying: "they inspire me to do better each day."

Panting's career started at local side Thatcham Tornadoes between the ages of five and eight, followed by a spell at Reading's Centre of Excellence for eight years. 

From there came a place in the Reading Women's team until the age of 18, before joining Maidenhead and later Portsmouth.

A one-year spell at Lewes at the age of 27 then preceded Panting's signing for Saints ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The midfielder lists her favourite moment as a Saint scoring in front of a crowd at St Mary's debut in the 2019/20 FA Cup run.
