Striker Lily Agg has become Charlton Athletic’s seventh signing of the summer, returning to England from Germany, where she helped FFC Frankfurt finish sixth in the Frauen Bundesliga.

Agg previously played for Arsenal and Millwall Lionesses before being part of Brighton & Hove Albion’s FAWPL Championship Play Off winning side and then playing for Bristol City in the 2017 WSL Spring Series.

“It’s a challenge, of course, but one that the club is more than ready for” Agg told cafc.co.uk after signing. “I think it’s going to be a very exciting year.

“I think everyone’s really excited, the signings that have been made so far shows the intent of the club and where they want to be.

“I do think we’ve got a very strong team with the likes of Kit [Graham] and Gemma [Bryan] – nothing but goals – and then Gurrsy [Charlotte Gurr] who I played with at Brighton – really strong players all round.”

Apart from the chance to move back closer to family and friends, one contributing factor in Agg’s decision to join the Addicks was first team coach James Marrs, under whom she played with at Brighton.

“I know James [Marrs] ever so well. He is the best coach I’ve had and I know that every training session with him is going to make me better,” she added.
