Twenty-three year-old defender Jemma Purfield has left Liverpool FC Women after reaching the end of her contract.

She joined the Reds in last year after returning from the American college system, where she represented both South Alabama Sun Belt and South Arizona State Sun Devils.

An attacking left full-back, she made an instant impression by scoring a spectacular goal on her debut.

LFC Women manager Vicky Jepson told liverpoolfc.com: “We just want to wish Jemma well as she’s been a great young player in the squad for the last 18 months.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with her and we’ll all be watching her future progress with great interest.”

Purfield commented: “I want to say a massive thank you to the players, staff and supporters for all they’ve done.

“It’s been an honour to play for a club as big as Liverpool. I wish everyone involved with the club nothing but the best for the future!”
