Chelsea head coach Emma Hayes has become the fourth inductee of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame.
Hayes is the longest serving manager in the WSL and is one of the country’s most successful head coaches.
Her record of four league titles surpasses any other manager during the FA Women’s Super League era, she has also established Chelsea as one of Europe’s giants during that time, managing some of the world’s best players.
She’s also won two FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cups and two Vitality Women’s FA Cups, while she recently passed 150 Barclays FA Women’s Super League games in charge of her club.
The Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame expert selection panel agreed that Hayes was a worthy inductee based on her managerial achievements, but also the impact she has had on the women’s game during her career.
Chair of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame panel, Kelly Simmons, said: “Induction into the Hall of Fame is the highest individual honour offered by the league and I am delighted that Emma has been inducted.
“Her record is incredible, but she’s so much more than that. She’s a great ambassador for the league, who works tirelessly behind the scenes, whist also encouraging the development of coaches.
“She’s taken her knowledge into the broadcast world to become a great pundit, and I feel we are really lucky to have her in the league and recognised in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame.”
