The announcement was released earlier today in an official press statement by the Football Association. Fara Williams MBE became the first inductee into the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame this morning, which prompted the announcement.

Yankey was a member of the Arsenal team that won the FA Women’s Super League 1 title for the first time in 2011, and she went on to win it again the following year.

Suzanne Wrack, writer and member of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame selection panel, stated of Yankey’s induction into the Hall of Fame that: ” I am delighted that Rachel Yankey has been unveiled as one of the first-ever Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame inductees.”

“She was always a player I admired and one of those individuals who you could tell genuinely enjoyed every minute she had on the pitch.”

“Watching her as a player was an absolute pleasure and I am thrilled that she is taking that knowledge into coaching. She is fully deserving of her induction into the inaugural Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame.”

Within the next 24 hours, two more people will be admitted into the Barclays FA Women’s Super League Hall of Fame, and lengthier interviews will be broadcast on Sky Sports’ ‘Inside the WSL’ show at 6 p.m. tomorrow on Sky Sports Premier League.
