Charlton Athletic Women’s first summer signing is that of prolific striker Gemma Bryan from neighbours Crystal Palace.

The Addicks say it’s a return to the red side of South East London for Bryan, who spent four years with the club between 2008 and 2012, scoring 63 goals from 95 games.

Having netted 31 league goals last season, Bryan was pipped to the FA Women’s Premier League South Golden Boot award by just one goal by new team mate Kit Graham. In three seasons with Palace, Bryan scored 104 goals from 71 appearances in all competitions.

Speaking with the club, Bryan is pleased to have got the deal over the line.

“Charlton had a really good season last year, gaining promotion so I’m looking forward to being part of what the team is building on in the future” said Bryan

“Working with the management I want to improve myself as a player and join the attack as we have the leading goal scorers in the Southern Division.”
