It is 7.47pm last Tuesday night in a small stadium in Bromley, south-east London. Rianna Jarrett is wearing the No 23 jersey in the Brighton & Hove Albion's away all-black strip. It's her first game for a club she joined 33 days previously and it's her first game as a full-time professional football player.
This game wasn't meant to happen this week. Brighton's Women's FA Cup fifth round game against Crystal Palace at Hayes Lane was originally slated for earlier this month but was postponed because of bad weather. But it's now fallen nicely for Jarrett. She'd tell you herself that she doesn't score too many goals from outside the box.
But this night is different.
Less than 20 minutes into the game, she gets the ball from around 25 yards out and kicks a floating shot in over Palace 'keeper Lucy Gillett and into the back of the net. Thirty-six seconds into the second half, Jarrett scores her second goal from a header. You only get one chance to make a first impression. Impression made. Debuts don't come much better than this.
Usually videos of goals from an evening like last Tuesday for an Ireland international would rip through social media. But this game wasn't on TV, or streamed, or sliced-up for social.
You need a member's log-in to the club website to view Jarrett's work. Just as well that those closest to her were there in person.
After their 3-0 win, Brighton manager Hope Powell told the players to go and thank their fans in the stand. It was then that Jarrett spotted her mother Doreen, her twin brother Jordan, her youngest brother Connolly, and their family friend Wezley.
Her mother left Wexford town and moved to Bristol over six years ago, and last Tuesday they all travelled together to London to watch Rianna play in what was their first time all together since Christmas. Two goals on your debut and your family there to witness it - nights don't come much better.
"I was delighted to see them. Also, the important thing was that we got the win and we're in the next round of the FA Cup," Jarrett said the following evening. "But to get two goals I can't actually describe the feeling. I think it still hasn't quite sunk in for me yet."
In the kind of rush that the good people at Sky Sports News would over-hype, there was an element of drama to Jarrett's move to Brighton from Wexford Youths on transfer deadline day on Thursday, January 23.
She was meant to have her trial with Brighton last November but that was put off after she hyper-extended her knee and damaged the meniscus cartilage while playing for Wexford Youths in their 3-2 Women's FAI Cup final win over Peamount United on November 3.
She finally had her trial early last month, they agreed an offer on Monday, January 20; on Tuesday she told her boss at a data and analytics company in Wexford that she was finishing up; on Wednesday she had an appointment with the doctor in Dublin about her knee; on Thursday she flew to Brighton to do her medical and get everything signed-off on a six-month contract before the 5pm deadline.
She returned home to Wexford town to pack up what she needed, flew back to Brighton on the Monday and she's been there since. Jarrett's career hasn't always ticked along as rapidly as that. She's 25 but has already endured the kind of horrendous luck with serious knee injuries that would break most other footballers.
By 21 she had already gone through three ruptured Anterior Cruciate Ligament injuries. She knows of only Megan Rapinoe and former England player Claire Rafferty who've experienced the same number of ACL injuries and come back from them. Jarrett was 18 when she first ruptured her right knee in April 2013.
Two years later she did the same knee again while playing in La Manga.
A year later, at the age of 21, she ruptured her left knee while playing for the Republic of Ireland senior team against Italy in the Cyprus Cup. This third time knocked her. She spent 14 months out of football and picked up a virus infection which set her back in the middle of her rehab. "I struggled a little bit for a couple of months, just lacking the motivation because it's quite lonely. It's only you that goes and does the exercises, it's only you that goes out and does the running.
"The FAI put me in contact with Dan Horan who is involved with the Irish senior men's team and was a lecturer in IT Carlow at the time where I was studying. The initial conversation (in October 2016) was about what level I wanted to get back playing at because I was struggling to find motivation in my recovery.
"Initially I advised him that I just wanted to get back to a level where I could have a kick-about with my friends and brothers. About a week or so later we had another conversation and my outlook changed. I knew that I wanted to get back playing with Wexford Youths and, some day, Ireland."
So when it came to signing for Brighton she looked for certain guarantees to make sure this move was going to be right for her and the club.
"Obviously the offer of full-time football is hard to turn down but I wasn't going to jump at an opportunity just because it was given to me. For me and for everyone involved, it was important that they were aware of my history, that they were aware of my injury background.
"The important part for me was getting reassurance from their medical team. Obviously I was coming back from a little bit of a knock, and I didn't want to be - not pressurised because I know my body and I'm old enough to speak for myself - but I didn't want to be put in a situation where they're requesting me to play but I'm not fit to train, nobody wants that. And obviously coming from an amateur into a professional environment it's going to take a bit of adapting."
Earlier this month, Chelsea FC Women's manager Emma Hayes said they are using a specialist app to tailor their training around players' menstrual cycles to help control the weight fluctuations which could affect players at certain times of the month. It's hoped this will help reduce a player's chances of sustaining soft tissue damage, like anterior cruciate ligament injuries which have haunted Jarrett.
"At Brighton, every player's menstrual cycle is tracked," she says. "It's becoming more and more important in women's football as studies have shown that at certain stages of your cycle, you are more likely to sustain an injury."
When Jarrett scored her first international senior goal for Ireland in their UEFA Women's Euro 2021 qualifier 3-2 win over Ukraine last October, she was the exception as the only player on the pitch who wasn't full-time, and she was named player of the match.
She's in the provisional squad for Thursday's Euro qualifier against Greece at Tallaght and away to Montenegro on March 11 but she doesn't allow herself to assume she'll automatically make the cut. But she's fit and firing again. In typical striker fashion, she's got her timing just right.
