Paris Saint-Germain defender Ashley Lawrence packs for an away day

Travel is a fact of life for any pro footballer and that goes double for Paris star Ashley Lawrence: when she isn’t jetting around in the Women’s Champions League, the 24-year-old faces trips back to her native Canada. That might be why she has developed a packing routine of coordinated pandemonium. “I try to pack as organised as possible; it makes me feel better, mentally," she says." It’s not last-minute in the sense of chaos and throwing everything in: it’s last-minute, but I know exactly what I need to bring.”

What's in Ashley Lawrence's bag?

1. In the past I’ve packed everything but forgotten my shin pads. I always bring my cleats in my carry-on, then there’s no chance of me forgetting them. 

2. Jerseys and match stuff are taken care of, but anything else players are responsible for. There’s a pair of gloves with the Eiffel Tower on I always use.

3. I like to bring books. I love reading personal-development books. Right now I’m reading The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell.

4. I always have my laptop with me. I can check my mail, watch Netflix… It’s very lightweight, easy to carry. I just finished watching The Stranger.

5. There are three pairs of adidas shoes I like to wear. I also like having my headphones for when I need to get in the zone, or just into a bubble.

6. I do and I don’t want to say my phone. It’s not something I’m dependent on, but communication with family and loved ones is important.
