Goalkeeper Emily Ramsey has left Manchester United following the end of her contract, the club have confirmed.
The England Under 21 international joined from Liverpool in 2018 and she made three starts during the club’s inaugural season as they were promoted to the Women’s Super League.
Despite the occasional appearance in the League Cup, though, the majority of Ramsey’s game time came when she was sent out on loan.
The shot-stopper would have been a regular starter for Sheffield United after joining the Blades for a loan spell in 2020 but, due to the pandemic, the campaign was cut short.
Just over a year later, Ramsey made another temporary move to West Ham as cover for Mackenzie Arnold who had sustained a knee injury. She then returned to Manchester following Arnold’s recovery.
Ramsey’s time at Birmingham and Everton
Despite not playing a great deal for her parent club, the England youth international signed a new contract before joining Birmingham for a season-long loan during the 2021/22 campaign.
Ramsey was a regular starter for the Blues, although her side were relegated from the top flight at the end of the season, having conceded 51 goals.
One final loan spell at Everton last campaign saw her play less frequently, with Courtney Brosnan generally being favoured ahead of her.
United are already well-stocked in goal
With England number one Mary Earps currently in between the posts, and Sophie Baggaley on the bench, manager Marc Skinner will be happy with his options heading into next season.
The competition for Ramsey was, unfortunately, too fierce and she may have to try her luck in the Championship. Considering she is still young at 22 years of age, though, there is nothing stopping her from establishing herself as a regular at another WSL team in the very near future. We shall see how her career unfolds.
