Meet Our Player: Emma
Updated: Jun 23
Hull & East Yorkshire PFC would like to introduce you to our first team player Emma who is the latest to star in Meet Our Players series. Emma is an academy graduate who has progressed into the first team about one season ago. Since joining the first team, she has transformed and grown into a very good upcoming player in the game. Emma recently raised funds to purchase her own Strikeforce to help progress her game. She plays in the MDUK Championship and North East Championship. We introduce you to Emma:
How long have you been playing powerchair football?
I have been playing for about two and a half years.
What do you enjoy the most about powerchair football?
I enjoy spending time with the team and meeting new people.
Why should someone who has a physical disability, and uses a wheelchair on a daily basis try powerchair football?
Because it’s a chance for them to experience something new and they can also get the sport in their day to day lives. Also, it’s a chance to play for a team.
How has powerchair football changed your life?
It’s made me more confident and I have made new friends.
What’s your favourite memory of the club?
My favourite memory was when I started playing for the first team and scoring my first nationals goal. I was completely shocked when I found out I was playing for the first team.
Where do you see yourself in five years?
I see myself still playing powerchair football and playing for the Eels.
How did it feel when you first tried powerchair football?
I found it amazing and I knew it was something I wanted to do in the future.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?
I love all animals and especially horse racing.
What are your hobbies away from powerchair football?
I love to bake and watch lots of programmes about animals and spend quality time with my family.
What have you been doing during the lockdown?
I have been doing lots of baking, crafts and gardening.
We would like to thank Emma for taking her time during the lockdown to answer these questions. It's clear to see Emma has a passion for the club and powerchair football.
Tomorrow, we will have an exclusive interview with West Bromwich Albion and England powerchair football player, Marcus Harrison.
