Emma Fletcher in 2013 with her BC Soccer Youth Player of the Year Award
Emma Fletcher is an attacking midfielder who started out with the Gordon Head Soccer Association (now Saanich Fusion Football Club) and quickly advanced through the ranks of local soccer. As a captain of her Lower Island Soccer Association representative team, she played provincially and also received attention from the Vancouver Whitecaps, so moved to Vancouver to advance her soccer career.
Emma started the 2012/2013 playing season in a New Zealand jersey as she has dual citizenship. She earned eight caps as a member of the U17 New Zealand Women’s National Team and played at the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in matches versus Brazil, Japan and Mexico.
She has recently been playing NCAA Division 1 at Louisiana State University and last week was announced in the lineup for the Canadian team in this summer's FIFA Under 20 Women’s World Cup which will be played August 5-24 in Toronto, Montreal, Moncton and Edmonton.
Lower Island Soccer Association is proud to remember Emma as a member of our team and wish her luck as part of our country’s team.
