South Coast Journalism is pleased to announce that we have sponsored Emma Pinner for the 2017/18 season.

Emma (pictured) is a current member of the Southampton Women FC squad who ply their trade in the Women’s Premier League Division One (South & West).

She first appeared in an SCJ video back in the 2013, when our company was just a university project, and was featured on a regular basis until her injury last season.

When she took over as co-captain for Solent Ladies (now Team Solent Ladies) in 2014, Emma made sure to get SCJ back in for the season and has remained a friend of the company ever since.

She graduated from Solent University and stayed with the team briefly, before moving to current side Southampton. 

Having just returned to regular playing since her operation, that kept her out of action for the majority of the 2016/17 campaign for Southampton Women, Emma is now back amongst the goals.

Her goal against Denham United Ladies in FA Cup Qualifying will have gone someway to making up for her disappointment at missing out on playing in the first round proper last season. She also scored against Basingstoke Town last weekend.

Southampton’s next fixture is against Poole Town Ladies at Verwood Town FC and is a 7.45pm kick off on Wednesday 20th September.
