Liverpool FC Women have signed 24-year-old Carla Humphrey after the midfielder ended a four-year spell with Bristol City.

Manager Matt Beard told Liverpoolfc.com: “Carla’s another talented player, very good in tight spaces and someone with a great football brain.

“She sees pictures a lot of people don’t see and especially if you’re playing against a block, she’s going to be valuable in those tight spaces and creating goalscoring opportunities.

“She’ll also offer a little bit of versatility. She can play wide, she can play in the No.8 and play in the No.10. She’s going to be a good addition to the team.”

Humphrey commented: “I’m so, so excited to be here. I’m really happy, it’s such a big club and I’m just really proud to come and represent Liverpool and the challenge that awaits in trying to get promotion. I’m just really excited to be here.

“Training’s been great and the girls have really helped me settle in. I knew a couple of them before and have played with some at other clubs, so I’m just excited to play with them.”

Humphrey will reunite with Reds boss Beard, who worked with her at Bristol City in the second half of last season.

She continued: “I worked with Matt at Bristol City and he was great for me personally. In such a short space of time he improved me massively. I think if he did that in that short time, then what can he do in a full season?

“He was great for me and I jumped at the chance to work with him again. Also, to be at a club like Liverpool, it just felt like the right fit.”
