Lindsay Johnson (born May 8, 1980 in Hartlepool ) is an English football player . The English national player , who can be used in all defensive positions, is currently active for the Everton Ladies .

Athletic career

Born in Hartlepool, Lindsay Johnson first attended the Fens Primary School, then the Manor College of Technology and the Hartlepool Sixth Form College. From a young age she was sporting very dedicated, trained at the age of six years in the field of athletics and participated in national competitions at the age of eight. She competed in the 200-meter run and in the long jump ; in addition, she was in hockey and netball selection teams.

At the age of eleven, Johnson first played organized football in a girls' club. Her Premier League career started relatively late and after a phase with the Liverpool Ladies , she went to city rivals Everton Ladies in 2003. There she made a name for herself as "Lindsay Lightning" because of her speed. She was voted Best Player in the 2005 FA Women's Cup Final , but the game against the Charlton Athletic Ladies was lost 1-0. Three years later she won her first national trophy in English women's football with a 1-0 final win against the Arsenal Ladies with the Premier League Cup .

In the English senior team , Johnson made her debut on September 18, 2004 against the Netherlands , after she had previously been in the U-21 selection. She owed it to her good performances in the Algarve Cup that she found herself often in the Hope Powell squad from now on . For the 2007 World Cup in China , however, it was initially not planned, but after the injury of Steph Houghton it was nominated for the tournament. The trained teacher, who had meanwhile given up her profession in favor of football - financially supported by a central contract of the Football Association - took part in the European Championship in Finland in 2009 and due to her versatile applicability, she was considered a good security for Alex Scott and Faye White . She played the first 68 minutes of the quarter-finals against hosts Finland and completed the entire two hours (including extra time) against the Netherlands.
