London Bees land French striker Anne-Laure Davy from Lille


Anne-Laure Davy, 26, makes the move to FA Women’s Championship side London Bees from French top-flight club Lille OSC.

The forward comes to The Hive with a wealth of experience having also played in the USA as well as with Watford in WSL 2 and has Champions League experience with Cardiff Met.

With her new move sealed, Davy is looking forward to an exciting challenge:

“It is so nice to be back playing in England. I have always loved the atmosphere, the people, everything around football here is so special, so it definitely feels really good.

“I love challenges. I am always eager to get outside of my comfort zone and push my limits so signing in England and at London Bees was definitely the right step for me in my career.”

Bees Head Coach Luke Swindlehurst added:

“It’s a fantastic signing for us and I’m very pleased we have brought in Anne-Laure as she has all the qualities to be a massive success here at London Bees. Her experience from the French D1 will give us another dimension and her attributes suit English football perfectly. She’s quick, strong and powerful so I’m looking forward to working with her in the new season.”
