Brighton & Hove Albion have made it three additions from Australian champions Sydney FC with the signing of full-back Charlize Rule on a long-term deal.

Head coach, Melissa Phillips, told “We are excited that Charlize is joining Brighton this summer from Sydney FC alongside her fellow teammates, Madison [Haley] and Mackenzie [Hawkesby].

“She is an exciting young player with a lot of ambition in the game and we look forward to welcoming her into our squad.

“Her recent success in Australia will help carry momentum into the squad as we prepare for another season, but we also believe she can further develop as a young player with us in the WSL.”

Rule joined Sydney FC in 2020 where she helped lift the A-League title in April alongside new Albion team-mates Madison Haley and Mackenzie Hawkesby.
