Manchester United keeper loaned to West Ham United for the remainder of the season

Manchester United goalkeeper Emily Ramsey has joined the club’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League rivals West Ham United on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old has been used by Manchester United as a back-up for first choice goalkeeper Mary Earps this season and manager Casey Stoney has allowed the player to go out on loan.

Ramsey’s loan to West Ham United was confirmed in a post on Manchester United’s official Twitter account earlier this afternoon. The player has been named on the bench for West Ham United’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against reigning champions Chelsea at The Chigwell Construction Stadium this afternoon.

The Salford-born keeper was on Manchester United’s books as a youth before joining Liverpool. The player returned to The Red Devils in 2018 when the club established their senior side. Ramsey was a member of the squad which won the FA Women’s Championship title in 2018/2019.

With Ramsey finding first team opportunities hard to come by at The Leigh Sports Village, the player spent a period on loan at second tier club Sheffield United last season where she played one game. The keeper’s other senior playing experience has come for parent club Manchester United in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup.

Ramsey will battle with Courtney Brosnan and Mackenzie Arnold for a first team place during her time at West Ham United.
