Emma joined us from BC Hacken in January 2022.

Women’s first-team head coach Melissa Phillips said, “We’re really happy that Emma has extended her stay with us, it's great news for her and the club.

“She adds a level of depth to the squad's backline, being able to play across multiple positions, and is very forward thinking across them all.  

"She'll be another key asset for us as we prepare for another competitive season."

The defender arrived having won both the Swedish league and cup during her career.

Emma won her first Swedish cap in 2019 and was part of the squad that reached the final of the Olympic tournament in Tokyo in 2021. 

This summer she trained with the Swedish international team before their departure to Australia for the World Cup.
