City on Lipman:
Defender Emma Lipman joined City in July 2013 from Leeds United Ladies.
Lipman started her career with Coventry City Ladies before going on to play for Leeds City Vixens. She remained at the club until 2011, when she made the decision to move across the city and signed for Leeds United.
She enjoyed a successful stint at the Lilywhites, slotting straight into the first-team and alternating between defensive and midfield roles. A string of fine performances soon caught the eye of City, who snapped her up last summer.
Lipman also has three caps and one goal for the England Universities side, finding the net in a 2-0 win over Welsh Universities.
In 2010, she represented Great Britain’s Futsal team in the World University Games in Serbia – an achievement she claims is her best to date.
A hard-working full-back who isn’t afraid to get stuck in with a tackle and is strong in the air, Lipman is eager for the start of the season to arrive.
When asked of her targets for the coming season, she revealed that she’s relishing the chance to challenge herself. She also hopes to continue her own development as a player, whilst maintaining a place in the starting line-up where possible.
Playing with such quality around her, Lipman feels that the new City side can produce exciting and impressive performances which will hopefully lead them to success come the end of the season.
