Emma Checker makes the move to France

Westfield Matildas defender Emma Checker has been announced as the newest player of D1 Féminine club FC Fleury 91. 

Checker, 24, who was most recently involved in Melbourne City's Westfield W-League Championship-winning season, will be embarking on her second overseas stint. 

The central defender was a rock at the back for City, helping the club amass the most clean sheets in the competition. 

FC Fleury 91 finished seventh in the 2019–20 Division 1 Féminine season, with the competition abandoned after 16 rounds due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
