Emma Jillian Kete (born 1 September 1987), is a New Zealand footballer currently playing for Manchester City in the FA Women's Super League, and who has been a member of the Football Ferns, the New Zealand women's association football team.[2]

Club career[edit]

Kete joined Ottawa Fury Women in July 2009, playing alongside fellow Kiwis Amber Hearn, Hayley Moorwood and Ria Percival at the Canadian W-League club.[3]

She signed for FA WSL club Lincoln Ladies in July 2011.[4] Due to an injury she only played six minutes of one match and left the club after the season.[5]

She signed for Naisten liiga club PK-35 Vantaa in September 2011.[6] With PK-35 she won her first trophy by winning the Finnish Women's Cup. Following the end of the season in October she moved to Perth Glory in the Australian W-League, but she was sacked in December following an incident with Lisa-Marie Woods.[7]

She then played at Canberra United,[8] and won the W-League with them. After the season she transferred to Sydney FC,[9] who then won the W-League as well.

In 2013 she transferred to German side SC 07 Bad Neuenahr.[10]

In early 2014 she then moved on to her first American team, signing with Western New York Flash, before moving on again in July 2014 to join newcomers to the FA Women's Super League in England, Manchester City.[11]

International career[edit]

She travelled with the Young Ferns Under-20 side to the 2006 Women's U-20 World Cup in Russia, making a late substitute appearance in their opening game against Australia.[12]

Kete made her senior international debut against Australia on 4 February 2007.[13]

She was included in the New Zealand squad for the 2008 Summer Olympic games,[14] starting in each of New Zealand's group games against Japan (2-2), Norway (0-1) and USA (0-4).
