Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE)
This is awarded for a significant achievement or outstanding service to the community. An MBE is also awarded for local ‘hands-on’ service which stands out as an example to other people.
Congratulations to the deserviing Chelsea boss, in her award at the Queen's 90th birthday honors, for services to football. Emma has coached ladies football for 15 years with the majority leading Arsenal. She moved to Chelsea in 2012 and has brought them many successes including making it to the final match of the 2016 FA Cup, though they were defeated by her old squad Arsenal (ouch).
It's thrilling to see a female coach receive such grand recognition for football accomplishments, and I hope it inspires young women around the world to consider jumping onto the coaching ladder and start getting your licenses. #StayInTheGame
