Upcoming guests for the 'Legends Table'
SUNDERLAND v GILLINGHAM
Saturday 7th March 2020 - Kick-off 3.00pm
One of the stalwarts of women’s football on Wearside, Keira Ramshaw has spent her entire top-class career with her home town club. Her first appearance came on 18th April 2010 when she came off the bench in a 4-0 defeat to Everton before making her first start for the club away to Watford in the second game of the following season. Thereafter, Keira was almost an ever-present in a Sunderland side that swept all before them to be crowned as champions of FA Women’s Premier League National Division and in the two seasons that followed she netted double figures as they repeated the feat to complete a remarkable treble.
International recognition quickly followed when Keira, along with team-mate Beth Mead, was called up to the England Women’s Under-19 squad for the 2012 UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship and she played in two 2nd round qualifiers as well as all three Group Stage games at the finals in Turkey.
In 2014, Keira finished as Sunderland’s leading scorer with 10 goals in 18 games as the club were crowned a champions of the newly formed FA Women’s Super League 2. Sadly, she also suffered the disappointment of relegation four years later although she was one of only four first-team players to be retained by Sunderland having been officially appointed as club captain in August 2018.
