Club career

Emerton was a product of the Australian Institute of Sport and started his career with the Olympic Sharks (now Sydney Olympic) in the National Soccer League in August 1996, making 93 appearances and scoring 14 goals.[1] After captaining the Olyroos at the Sydney Olympics, he joined Feyenoord Rotterdam in August 2000[1] for a fee of £415,000,[2] winning a UEFA Cup winners medal in May 2002[3] and being named the 2002 Oceania Footballer of the Year. He made a total of 111 league and cup appearances for Feyenoord, scoring eleven goals.[1] Sydney Olympic Football Club is an Australian football (soccer) club based in Sydney, Australia. ...

After being linked with several Premiership teams,[4] he joined Blackburn Rovers in July 2003 for an undisclosed fee, on a four-year contract, saying, "I've always dreamed of playing in the Premiership so to finally achieve it is great."[5] His transfer to Blackburn was noted by the fact that he apparently turned down offers from larger clubs so that he could play in his preferred position on the wing.[6] He scored on his debut in a 5-1 win over Wolves in August 2003.[7] The manager, Graeme Souness, said of him, "Emerton is a top player, we are very fortunate to have him. [...] If he can keep up that level of performance I will be quite happy."[8] However, he was unable to inspire Blackburn as they failed to make progress in the UEFA Cup[9] and struggled against relegation.[10] Blackburn Rovers Football Club are an English Premier League football club based in the town of Blackburn, Lancashire. ...

Blackburn survived that season but again struggled in the 2004/05 season, not winning a game until September 2004.[11] However, the club preserved their Premiership status following a change of manager and reached the FA Cup semi-finals, where they lost to Arsenal.[12] Emerton paid credit to new manager, Mark Hughes, ""It is a huge achievement. When Mark came in we were in a bit of disarray but from the day he arrived we worked on our fitness. Everyone is better for that and it has shown in our performances."[11] Leslie Mark Hughes OBE (born November 1, 1963 in Ruabon, Wrexham, Wales), nicknamed Sparky, is a former Welsh football player and currently a manager at Blackburn Rovers. ...


A more successful season in 2005-06 saw Blackburn reach the 5th round of the FA Cup, losing to West Ham,[13] the semi-finals of the Carling Cup, losing to Manchester United,[14] and qualify for the UEFA Cup. Following the end of the season, Emerton signed a new four-year deal at Blackburn in August 2006.[15] Mark Hughes described him as "...a player who gives me a lot of options. He can carry the ball from one end of the field to the other. That's why teams have coveted him this summer."[15] Emerton made 47 appearances in the 2006-07 season[1] as Blackburn finished in mid-table but reached the FA Cup semi-final for the second time in three years, losing to Chelsea,[16] and reached the knock-out stages of the UEFA cup, eventually losing out to Bayer Leverkusen for a place in the last 16.[17] At the end of the 2006-07 season, Emerton had made a total of 167 appearances for Blackburn in all competitions, scoring 10 goals.[1] West Ham United Football Club is an English football club based in West Ham, London Borough of Newham, and have played their home matches at the 35,146 capacity Boleyn Ground stadium since 1904. ...
