Chair of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame panel, Kelly Simmons, has stated that she’s delighted Emma has been inducted.
Emma Hayes, Chelsea Women’s boss, is the longest-serving head coach in the WSL, having first taken charge in 20212.
She has led Chelsea to four league trophies, two Continental Tyres league cups, and two FA cups, as well as reaching the women’s Champions
League final this year.
The chair of Barclays FA WSL said: “Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest individual honour offered by the league and I am delighted that Emma has been inducted.
“Her record is incredible, but she’s so much more than that.
She’s a great ambassador for the league, who works tirelessly behind the scenes, whilst also encouraging the development of coaches.”
She’s taken her knowledge into the broadcast world to become a great pundit, and I feel we are really lucky to have her in the league and recognised in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame.”
She becomes the 4th inductee after Fara Williams, Rachel Yankey and Kelly Smith.
