Who is Fara Williams?

The 38-year-old has enjoyed an illustrious 20-year career as a midfielder playing for multiple clubs as well as the English national team.

The pro footballer formally played for England

After making her senior debut in 2001, Williams earned 172 caps for the England Women's Team, making her their highest capped player. In 2012, Fara played a key role as part of the GB team at the London Olympics.

London-born Fara attended Shene school in Richmond, London, and has played for the likes of Chelsea Ladies under-14s, Charlton Athletic Ladies, Everton Ladies, Liverpool, Arsenal and Reading. The former midfielder hung up her boots in April 2021 and now enjoys a successful career as a sports pundit for BBC.

Throughout her career, Fara has inspired legions of young girls across the country. Not only has she paved the way for women's football, but she has also markedly proven the power of true grit and determination.

After enduring a difficult family life, Fara spent six years homeless while still playing for Chelsea, Charlton and England. The football pro had to flit between various hostels before her manager eventually caught wind of her precarious living arrangements. To this day, Fara works tirelessly with homeless charities in a bid to raise awareness and provide support to those in need.

Who is she married to?

In December 2015, Fara married former Everton teammate Amy Kane. Their marriage was short-lived, however, and the couple separated not long after. Since the breakdown of her marriage, Fara has remained extremely tight-lipped about the intimate details of her private life.

It is thought that the sports pundit is currently enjoying life as a single lady. Her ex Amy, meanwhile, appears to be in a new relationship. Judging by her Twitter profile picture and various snaps shared to the social media account, the Everton player is dating a blonde lady.
