Norfolk star receives prestigious reward

Former Norwich City Girls’ Centre of Excellence (COE) player Lauren Hemp has been named Vauxhall England Women’s Young Player of the Year.

The talented Bristol City forward saw off competition from fellow Lionesses Aoife Mannion, Ellie Brazil and Grace Fisk.

Lauren joined the Community Sports Foundation’s (CSF) Girls’ Programme aged 8, and was part of it until 2015. The 17 year old also trained with the Boys’ Elite Player Development Centre (PDC) to help her development as a player.

After finishing school in 2016, she left Norfolk to join Bristol City WFC, scoring on her debut for the first team in the Women’s Super League.

Last year, the young star skippered the Women’s England U17 side at the Euro finals in the Czech Republic and scored in the win over the Republic of Ireland.

CSF Girls’ Football Development Manager Sian Wager commented:

We are very proud to have played a part in Lauren’s progress and development and are delighted she has won this prestigious award.

“Lauren is keen to inspire the next generation of Norfolk female footballers; she regularly visits our PDC sessions when she returns to the county.”
