At the club level, Earps contributed to Manchester United’s historic achievements, securing a second-place finish in the WSL, the highest since promotion, and reaching the inaugural Women’s FA Cup final. United concluded the season with a 1-0 win over Liverpool, setting a new WSL record with 14 clean sheets during the campaign.

In the summer, Earps showcased her skills in England’s impressive World Cup run Down Under, earning the Golden Glove award for her contributions in Australia and New Zealand. At the recent FIFA awards ceremony in London, she expressed gratitude to her teammates, coaches, and the goalkeeping union for their support throughout her journey. Earps emphasized the challenges she faced on her path to success, encouraging others to persevere and be true to themselves. She highlighted the power of unity and speaking out against injustices, urging everyone to continue making a positive impact.

Mary Earps’ inspirational acceptance speech reflected her resilience and determination in the face of challenges, making her a deserving recipient of The Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper for the second consecutive year. Congratulations, Mary, on this well-deserved achievement.
