Redwood, Emma

Emma joined Exeter City from Cullompton Colts in 2002 having also played for Twyford Youth, in 1999 and 2000. 

Emma played for Exeter from 2002 to 2005 (possibly 2007) and again in 2011/12, after Cullompton had folded) and 2012/13.

From a match report from December 2012.

"Exeter City Ladies booked their place in the FA Women's Cup second round for the first time with a 7-0 victory over Brislington Ladies.

City dominated the first half but only took a single-goal advantage into the interval. But they came out all guns blazing after the break and eventually ran out comprehensive winners.

Exeter started the brightest and Emma Redwood in particular was steaming forward from the right-back position. After linking up well with Lola Garcia Sanchez, Redwood fired a cross into the path of Tash Knapman but her volley was parried out but Jordan Jones in goal.

However an opener was forthcoming, when Redwood was involved again. The right-back fed the ball to Catherine Wright and continued running on – Wright used the dummy run to find space and thrashed a shot from outside the box which beat the outstretched arms of Jones."

"I joined Exeter city at 16, way back in the day! Then they folded as did Newton Abbot. That's when the remaining players merged to create Cullompton Rangers and we played there. When Exeter city started again and Cullompton folded, I played for city when Steve Tully was the manager."
Emma R May 2022.

Emma from Hemyock won the accolade of higher education student of the year for excelling on the Foundation Degree in Coaching and Fitness at Exeter College in 2009.
