Lionfish at SEALIFE Manchester named after Mary Earps

– Published on:

A lionfish at SEALIFE Manchester has been named in honor of England goalkeeper Mary Earps, following her recent accolade as BBC Sports Personality of the Year. This unique tribute celebrates Earps’ remarkable achievements in 2023, including being named the Best FIFA Women’s Goalkeeper in February and earning the FIFA World Cup Golden Glove during the summer tournament.

Earps’ exceptional performances have not only been recognized globally but also within her club, Manchester United, where she was named in the PFA Women’s Super League Team of the Year for the 2022/23 season. Additionally, her outstanding displays on the international stage earned her the title of England Women’s Player of the Year.

The decision to name a lionfish after Earps at SEA LIFE Manchester is symbolic, given the fish’s association with the Lionesses, the nickname for the England women’s football team. Lionfish, known for their venomous fin spines, are predominantly found in warm tropical waters. They rely on their unique coloration and distinctive fins to deter predators, mirroring the formidable presence Earps has on the football field.

Jenn McDonough, General Manager at SEA LIFE Manchester, expressed pride in Earps’ achievements and her influence on the popularity of women’s football. McDonough highlighted Earps’ role as a motivational figure, inspiring others to pursue their dreams and strive for excellence. The naming of the lionfish after Earps is not just a celebration of her sporting accomplishments but also a recognition of her positive impact off the field.

SEA LIFE Manchester hopes that Earps will one day visit the aquarium to meet her namesake, further strengthening the connection between the football star and this unique gesture of appreciation.
