BECKY EASTON has been released by Liverpool Ladies following the expiration of her contract it was announced by the club earlier today.
A true Red, a Liverpool supporter in her second spell with the club (previously turning out for the club between 1994-97) after returning towards the end of 2012 as part of the Matt Beard revolution that saw the defender win 2 league titles in 2 years.
Named the Official Liverpool Ladies Supporters Player of the Year in 2014 after a storming campaign, one in which Liverpool kept 9 clean sheets in 14 league games to retain the title for the second successive year.
Becky is a tough-tackling, no-nonsense defender who will be sorely missed by all supporters of Liverpool, her crunching sliding challenges a real highlight along with her leadership on the pitch.
Despite a disappointing campaign Becky still stood out on the pitch, even scoring her first goal (at least during the second spell!) in the performance of the season by the team as Liverpool beat Arsenal 3-1 away.
On Friday night at the club’s end of season awards Becky was named Vitality Player of the Year, the awards that “takes into consideration an individual’s high fitness levels, staying active inside and outside of football as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle.” and no doubt has plenty of football left in her – I’d like to wish her the best with her next venture and hopefully we will see her return to the club in some capacity in the future.
