Liverpool FC Women have secured the return of Jasmine Matthews after she spent two seasons with Bristol City.

The 28-year-old,  who spent the 2018-19 campaign with the Reds, is a versatile player who can operate both as a defender or in midfield.

She will reunite with Liverpool boss Matt Beard, who managed her at Bristol City for part of last season.

Matthews told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m delighted to be back. When I knew Matt was coming to Liverpool it was always on the radar to come back.

“I loved playing in front of the fans here, they build up a great atmosphere and I had a great relationship with the girls.

“Working with Matt at Bristol, he really got the best out of me so when we had a conversation it was always going to be a no-brainer.”

Beard said: “Jas is a very, very good footballer, she surprised me. She reads the game really well, technically she’s gifted, she can pass the ball well and she’s got great vision.

“She knows the football club, she’s versatile and can play centre-back or midfield, and she’s going to be a really good asset to the squad.”
