Versatile midfielder Nicola Gibson, 25, has signed for London Bees and makes the move south after two seasons with Durham.

Speaking on her arrival at The Hive, Gibson told “I think at London Bees I will be given the opportunity to compete and really take my game to the next level. I am looking forward to working with Luke and helping the team be successful.

“The Championship will be a tough, competitive league. It sounds a cliche but there really will be no easy games. Consistency will be key, I think Bees have great potential to push for the top spots.”

Head Coach Luke Swindlehurst added: “Nicola is a good reader of the game and has some excellent defensive qualities. Her physical attributes will definitely give us some added steel which at times is a key requirement of this league. We look forward to seeing more of her in a London Bees shirt.”
