Versatile midfielder Nicola Gibson, 25, has signed for London Bees and makes the move south after two seasons with Durham.
Speaking on her arrival at The Hive, Gibson told londonbeeswsl.com: “I think at London Bees I will be given the opportunity to compete and really take my game to the next level. I am looking forward to working with Luke and helping the team be successful.
“The Championship will be a tough, competitive league. It sounds a cliche but there really will be no easy games. Consistency will be key, I think Bees have great potential to push for the top spots.”
Head Coach Luke Swindlehurst added: “Nicola is a good reader of the game and has some excellent defensive qualities. Her physical attributes will definitely give us some added steel which at times is a key requirement of this league. We look forward to seeing more of her in a London Bees shirt.”
