Manchester United and England player Mary Earps became the first goalkeeper in the Women’s Super League to keep 50 clean sheets.

The record-breaking clean sheet came against her former club Reading FC in a 1-0 win on January, 22.

Earps was called to action on a plethora of occasions for the duration of the tight encounter.

“She doesn’t mess around, there’s no fluff with Mary.”

Reading’s Justine Vanhaevermaet’s header produced a bright save out of Earps – her most notable of the game.

Striker Rachel Williams headed United to victory in the 87th minute sending the Red Devils to the top of the league.

England captain and fellow international teammate Leah Williamson spoke strongly about Earps via Sky documentary ‘Lionesses: How Football Came Home’.

Williamson grinned as she said: “She doesn’t mess around, there’s no fluff with Mary.”

The England number one was born and raised in West Bridgford – starting her footballing career at the West Bridgford Colts.

The Colts are one of the biggest youth teams in the UK, boasting 130 teams.

During this WSL campaign Earps has kept the ball out of her net in 8 out of 11 games.

Conceding only five goals throughout the current 2022/2023 season.

Accolades have come from all angles for Earps in recent weeks.

The 29-year-old has been nominated for FIFA Best Women’s Goalkeeper in a list of notable names released earlier this month.

You can have your say on who takes home the crown on FIFA+, with the voting closing on February, 3.

The winner will be announced at the The Best FIFA Football Awards on February, 27.
