Club career

Emslie began her senior career in 2011 with Scottish Women's Premier League team Hibernian, making her debut in a league game against Falkirk on 24 April.[1] In total, Emslie made thirty-five appearances and scored eighteen times in three seasons with Hibernian, winning the Scottish League Cup in her debut year.[1]

Between 2012 and 2015, Emslie attended Florida Atlantic University, majoring in exercise physiology.[2][3] During her time in the United States, she played for the Florida Atlantic Owls.[2] She ended her college career with 29 goals and 10 assists in four seasons.[4]

On 16 June 2016, Emslie returned to the UK and joined FA WSL 2 side Bristol City.[5] She went onto score ten goals in twelve matches for Bristol, leading her team to promotion into the FA WSL.[6] She signed a new contract with Bristol in February 2017.[6]

On 1 July 2017, following the end of the shortened FA WSL Spring Series, Emslie joined Manchester City.[7] She scored her first goal for the team in an FA WSL Cup group stage win over Oxford United on 2 November 2017.[1][8] She won a domestic cup double with City during the 2018–19 season, lifting both the League Cup and FA Cup.

On 30 May 2019, Emslie agreed a move to Orlando Pride of the NWSL,[9] officially joining the team upon conclusion of Scotland's run at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup[10] which ended on 19 June with a dramatic 3–3 draw against Argentina in the Group Stage.[11] She was the only one of the Prides' nine players at the World Cup to not progress to the knockout round.[12]

International career

Emslie has represented Scotland internationally. At youth level, she won caps with the U17s and U19s.[1][5] She scored goals in consecutive UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship tournaments in 2012 and 2013 respectively.[1]

In June 2013, Emslie made her senior debut against Iceland in an international friendly.[13] After it became clear that she would be based in the United States for a long period, Emslie was not considered for international selection until her studies in Florida concluded and she moved to England.[3] Her second cap came in a friendly against Denmark in January 2017.[3][14] She was recalled to the national team in August 2017 when new manager Shelley Kerr called her up for a friendly against Hungary.[15] Emslie subsequently scored her first senior international goal against Hungary in a 3–0 win at the Telki Training Centre in Pest County.[16][17] Kerr selected Emslie for the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France, the first time the nation had ever qualified for the tournament.[18]

Emslie scored Scotland's first-ever World Cup goal on 9 June 2019 in a group stage defeat to England.[1][19]

Personal life

Emslie was born in Edinburgh to parents Neil and Anna[2] before being raised in Penicuik.[3] She counts former Hibernian teammate Caroline Weir and Bristol teammate Chloe Arthur among her close friends, both of whom also play for Scotland.[3]
