Katie Robinson signs for WSL club Brighton
Women’s Super League club Brighton have signed Katie Robinson ahead of next season.
The 17 year-old has joined from fellow WSL side Bristol City who she made seven appearances for.
She said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Brighton. It’s a great club and I am really looking forward to working with [head coach] Hope Powell, the staff and players, and I can’t wait to get going.
“Hope has got so much experience. She’s a great manager and I can’t wait to learn and improve under her."
Hope Powell added Robinson is a ‘versatile’ player and she’s excited about her signing.
“To break into the WSL as Katie did for Bristol City last season was quite an achievement for a 17-year-old,” she said.
“She’s a versatile player because she plays up front or out wide and offers a goal threat. We’re looking forward to see how she develops, and I am sure she will want to be pushing for the first team squad as soon as the season starts.”
This comes after the club signed Charlton goalkeeper Katie Startup last week.
