Women's Team

Hemp targets trophies ahead of WSL opener

Lauren Hemp has her sights set on silverware ahead of the new Barclays Women’s Super League campaign.

The winger finished as our leading scorer across 2021/22, grabbing 21 goals and ten assists across 33 appearances in all competitions.

Her performances earned a spot in the WSL Team of the Year for a second successive season, while she was also named PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year for a fourth time in five years.

To cap off a memorable individual campaign, the winger, alongside four of her City team-mates, also helped England to Euro 2022 glory in the summer.

But rather than rest on her laurels, Hemp has set her sights on adding to that trophy haul at the Academy Stadium ahead of the new campaign.

“I’d love to win trophies with City obviously [this season]. That’s always a goal of mine,” she explained.

“I’ve had an incredible 12 months and I’m surrounded by the best players every single day. It only gets the best out of me.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what this season is going to hold but I’ve got my eyes on a lot of trophies with City.”

Hemp enjoyed an unforgettable summer as part of Sarina Wiegman’s Lionesses squad, and she is confident that those experiences will stand her and the team in good stead next season.

The winger says she has returned to the Academy Stadium with a spring in her step, and is excited to see what the new year holds.

“Yeah, it’s great to have that [experience]. Five of us represented our countries and won a medal so it’s great to bring that experience back here and back into the team.

“It’s been great to be back so far and seeing new faces.

“Hopefully, we’ll do well this season.”
