Hey I’m Emma! 

I’m a Liverpool fan and a goal keeper! I have been playing football for most of my life, around sixteen years. I’m lucky as my close group of girl friends are all footballers so we have always played in our spare time, literally whenever we get the opportunity. Its an awesome sport, it would be good to have more recognition as female footballers and to fill stadiums to hear the roar of the crowd. I remember when I  saved a penally, in a cup final, a couple of years back for my hometown team and we went on to win that was one of my best moments playing football. The cup final was of mixed team, both male and female team played.

 Football should be gender neutral. Women should be paid more. Women need to be recognised more for doing the same as the men in the same sport.
