Brighton & Hove Albion Women bring in England U-17 international forward Katie Robinson from Bristol City.

The 17-year-old, who made seven appearances for City last season, told brightonandhovealbion.com: “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.”

Powell believes Robinson is another with a lot of potential: “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.”
