As a player, she captained Barnet FC in 1989-2003 and began coaching its reserve team upon retiring. She also coached boys teams at Wealdstone FC.

“Tracey has a wealth of domestic and international experience that identified her as the best candidate to lead our U-15 girls national team,” said April Heinrichs, U.S. Soccer's Youth Women's National Team Director. “She has a great understanding of how to teach 13-, 14-, and 15 years-olds and how to send them home with doses of inspiration so they are improving every day, not just when we have them in national team camp.”
