Hope puts her boots in!

Hope puts her boots in! - 28 Feb 2012 - Women's Football NewsThe National Football Museum received a very special donation this week from Hope Powell, National Coach of the England women's team. 
As the latest in a long line of high profile donations to the museum, Hope presented her boots and runners-up medal from the 2009 UEFA Women's Championship final in Helsinki where England were beaten by Germany.
The objects from Hope's donation will sit within the Managers section of the museum when it opens in Manchester this summer. More than 140,000 objects, works of art and photographs make up this unique collection and highlights include a shirt from the world's first international match played in 1872, the 1966 World Cup Final ball and the shirt worn by Maradona during the infamous 1986 'Hand of God' quarter final match between England and Argentina.
Hope was appointed to her current role in June 1998, and previously played for England, making 66 appearances on the pitch, scoring 35 goals as an attacking midfielder. Hope was also inducted in to the Football Museum Hall of Fame in 2003.
Hope said: "I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to be involved with the new Football Museum, and I'm particularly pleased to be able to donate items with such real personal significance. My Euro 2009 final medal and boots represent a special moment for me in my managerial career, and to be displayed within the museum will be a great honour.
"I was inducted in to the museum Hall of Fame a few years ago, and I think the museum's recognition of my career successes is fantastic for the women's game as a whole; I'm really looking forward to the new museum opening in Manchester."
Another former England player, Sue Lopez, MBE and Hall of Fame member, donated items including two caps from her international career - one from her first appearance for England on the field, and the other from her managerial debut for Wales.
Of her donation, Sue said: "I'm so excited about the museum's opening. It is a fabulous opportunity to showcase some of the treasures of the game, and I feel very proud and honoured to be asked to contribute to the collection."
Sue won 22 caps as an England international between 1973-1979.
The museum will be one of Manchester's 'must see' attractions, with three floors of objects, stories, 'hands on' interactives, and a changing temporary exhibition programme showing that it's not just football - fashion, art and photography all have a part to play in bringing the story to life. And it will become the new home for photographer Stuart Clarke's 'Homes of Football' collection of images.
Visitors will also enjoy a distinctive retail, cafe and restaurant offer which will compete with Manchester's best
