How old is Shelley and what does she do?

Shelly was born in May 1985, which makes her 37 years old.

When she’s not running Boxx2Boxx and serving espresso with her partner Jill, Shelly works as a health care worker.

The couple opened their cafe in 2021 and apparently it’s currently covered in ‘vote for Jill’ notes as well as a permanent portrait of the England star.

The Northenden cafe is named after Jill’s infamous role as a box-to-box midfielder throughout her career for club and country,” the website states.

Shelley’s bio on the website also says, “Hey, I’m Shelley, co-owner of Boxx2Boxx Cafe, if you’re ever looking for me, you’ll find me here because that’s where I spend most days.

“Alfl white is my drink of choice. When I have free time I like to play board games and clean! I love going out and walking with a good coffee!’

Where did Jill and Shelley meet?

Shelley’s sister Jill’s former England team-mate Rachel Unite, so it’s likely the pair met when the supportive sibling came to support her sister at matches.

In October 2021, Shelley shared a snap of them celebrating their fourth anniversary together, making it five years now.

Sharing a post on October 17 with the hashtag #4years, she wrote: “It went by way too fast… but thanks for the best weekend ever! #4years #spoilt #loveyou.’

She said: “At first I didn’t want to leave them but they said go ahead – obviously it’s very different to watching her play football because it’s only for an hour but we’re all rooting for her.”

Shelley also mentioned the girls in her emotional letter that Jill received while in the jungle.

The note read: Hi Jill, this is Shelley, I love you and miss you so much. There is not a minute when you are not in my thoughts.

“I love you so much and now the rest of the world does too. This is because you are such a great person with your positive, kind and encouraging self. I’ll have a flat white waiting for you, love your biggest fans, Shelley, Evie and Hattie.
