Bristol City have signed Republic of Ireland midfielder Megan Connolly who left Brighton & Hove Albion over the summer.

At Brighton she gained four and a half years of experience in the WSL, then played every minute of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup group games.

Connolly told “It feels great to be here. I spoke with Lauren [Smith] earlier in the summer so it’s really nice to finally be here and finally get going.

“I’ve heard great things about the team and the culture within the group which was a really big thing for me because it can be quite hard to find such strong togetherness. We’re going to be fighting for every result next season, so having that is so important.”

“I’m going to try my best to be a leader like I showed at Brighton. I always want to be a good team player and an asset to the group to help in whatever way I can and push the others onwards.”
