Born in Leicester on 8 May, 1998, she scored six times in 30 appearances at international youth level for England, and has participated in two UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championships.
Plumptre became an NCAA national champion with the USC Trojans in 2016, and was also invited to the White House in Washington DC in January 2017 with the University of Southern California Women’s team.
She went from joining the Club's Girls' Centre of Excellence as an eight-year-old to becoming a full-time professional footballer for the Club she still supports and is now a valued member of the squad, playing 25 times in 2020/21 and winning Players' Player of the Season at the Club's End of Season Awards.
Composed in possession and expressive enough to often carry it into midfield, centre-back Plumptre scored her first goal for LCFC Women in a 2-1 victory over Sheffield United at Farley Way Stadium on 10 January, 2021.
After lifting the FA Women's Championship trophy, the former England youth international signed a new contract in June 2021 to keep her at the Club until at least the summer of 2023.
Her first goal of 2021/22, meanwhile, arrived against Everton in the Continental Tyres League Cup on 3 November, 2021.
