Meet goalkeeper Mary Earps, Nutriburst’s new brand ambassador

Mary Earps is a name synonymous with excellence in football. Her journey from grassroots to glory has been a testament to dedication, resilience, and talent. In this blog, we'll take a closer look at Mary Earps' remarkable career, highlighting her achievements, her impact beyond the pitch, and her partnership with Nutriburst, a brand committed to empowering athletes.

Early years and introduction to football

Mary's journey into the world of football began in her childhood in Stockport. Surrounded by a family passionate about sports, she was introduced to football at a young age. Her early experiences on local pitches sparked a love affair with the game, setting her on a path to greatness. Always with a ball at her feet, football quickly became more than just a game to her—it was a passion, a calling.

Mary’s rise to prominence

Mary's rise to prominence saw her play for six clubs in her first nine seasons, culminating in a standout spell at Reading FC Women. In 2018, she played a pivotal role in helping Reading reach a club-record finish and was named WSL Goalkeeper of the Year. Her journey continued as she joined the European elite at Wolfsburg, contributing to a league/cup double and earning a coveted spot in the England national team.

Representing England

As Mary's career reached new heights, so did her impact on the international stage. Since joining Manchester United in 2019, Mary has played every minute, amassing an impressive record of 33 clean sheets in 69 matches. Her stellar performances have solidified her position as the Lionesses' #1 goalkeeper under Sarina Wiegman. Notably, Mary became the first goalkeeper to achieve both 150 starts and 50 clean sheets in the WSL, a testament to her skill and consistency.

Off-pitch passions

Mary is driven by a deep passion for leaving the women's game in a better place, making goalkeeping cool, and advocating for equality. This passion is evident in her everyday life, from her speeches at FIFA Best Awards to her vocal stance on issues such as Nike's decision not to print goalkeeper shirts for the World Cup. Mary's advocacy work underscores her belief in the power of sport to drive positive change and inspire future generations.

Empowering excellence with Nutriburst

Mary's partnership with Nutriburst is rooted in empowerment and shared values. Founded by women, Nutriburst aligns perfectly with Mary's passion for female empowerment and holistic well-being. "Nutriburst really aligns with who I am as a person, what I'm passionate about, and my values," Mary affirms. 

As a goalkeeper, Mary emphasises the importance of mental strength and focus. "Things are really out of your control in goalkeeping. That requires real mental strength and focus. Nutriburst's vitamins give me that extra edge," she explains.
