Everton Women’s attacking midfielder Molly Pike has joined Bristol City on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign.

The 20-year-old has so far made 17 first team league appearances in her first 18 months with the Toffees, and has been capped by England at U-17, U-18 and U-19 levels.

Bristol City head coach Matt Beard told bcfc.co.uk: “Molly is an exciting young English talent, who has proven she can perform at Barclays FAWSL level.

“She’ll add depth to our midfield options as we enter the back end of the season and I firmly believe she can add great quality to our product in the final third.

“I’m excited to get to work Molly and see the impact she can make on the squad.”

Pike added: “I’m really looking forward to getting going at Bristol City and seeing what the second half of the season brings.

“Bristol City is a club that is renowned for giving chances to young players and I hope I can make an impact on the team and help the club pick up the results needed.

“I’m looking forward to learning from such an experienced manager in Matt and I’m excited to get to work with my new teammates.”
