Lauren Hemp Honored with MBE in New Year Honours List

Lauren Hemp, the dynamic forward for both Manchester City and the England national team, has been named in the esteemed New Year Honours List by King Charles, recognizing her outstanding contributions to women’s football. This annual tradition, dating back to 1860, sees the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom acknowledge individuals for their notable achievements and services in various fields.

At the age of 23, Hemp stands among the distinguished recipients chosen by King Charles for the 2024 award. Known for her exceptional performances, she has clinched four PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year awards, three of which were secured during her tenure at City. Additionally, Hemp earned a place in the PFA WSL Team of the Year for two consecutive seasons. Her impact extends beyond the club level, as she played a pivotal role in England’s triumph at the 2022 UEFA European Championship and secured a FIFA Women’s World Cup runners-up medal in 2023.

Hemp has been an integral part of Manchester City for five years, amassing 142 appearances and scoring 59 goals. During this period, she contributed to City’s victories in the 2018/19 FA Cup, as well as the 2018/19 and 2021/22 Continental Cup. As one of the youngest female football players to receive the MBE, Hemp expressed her gratitude for the prestigious honor.

Feeling privileged and honored, Hemp remarked, “It’s a huge achievement not only for me, but my family and everyone who loves our beautiful game. It’s been an incredible few years. I’d like to dedicate my MBE to everyone that has supported me in my career so far, and everyone behind the scenes for continuing to push boundaries to get women’s football to where it is today.”

Beyond her accomplishments at City, Hemp has become a global inspiration with her tenacity and passion showcased on the international stage. Since making her senior debut at 19, she has earned 51 caps and scored 16 goals for England. Her international accolades include the 2023 Women’s Finalissima trophy, the 2022 and 2023 Arnold Clark Cups, and representation for Team GB at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Manchester City extends hearty congratulations to Lauren Hemp for this remarkable achievement, acknowledging her significant contributions to the world of football.
