Guernsey defender Maya Le Tissier plays her part in Manchester United’s trouncing of Tottenham Hotspur to win their first women’s FA Cup.

Manchester United and England international Ella Toone scored the first goal late in the second half and that set the tone for the rest of the game.

Maya, who played the full 90 minutes, says it was a crucial moment:

“It was really important that we got the goal just before half-time, it kind of settles everyone down. But we were not complacent in half-time and we came out and scored another three.

I’m just so happy that I play centre half so that I can see Tooney striking to corner. I always have the best vision for Tooney’s goals, so I’m buzzing for her.”

In the second half a Rachel Williams header and two goals from Lucia Garcia completed the victory.

Maya, who joined Manchester United in 2022, says being part of the cup winning squad was amazing:

“I was so excited. I’ve been just so happy and with the season we’ve had we just really wanted to top it off with something really good. I can’t wait to go and see my family now.”
