After he was attacked he was outed online.

Verity, of Hull, said: “It’s hard playing small-minded teams.

“I once went for a tackle and handed a player in the face. She wouldn’t let go.

“She hocked and spat blood into my mouth. It was heart-wrenching. My family was there but luckily had left.”

He will one day have to move to a male team.

He said: “It’ll be sad to walk out without the lad-ies.

“But it’ll be a challenge to show transgender people it can be done.”

  1. Eitherway, Paparazzi is a great song, both the acoustic version and the electronic-y version,
    so this will show that she actually does have a good voice and doesn’t need to hide behind the bazillion filters being used.
    In the same sense of Katy Perry going through loads of filters for a more electronic voice in “I kissed a girl”, we all saw her voice complemented in “Thinking of you”.
