London City Lionesses have signed New Zealand international forward Paige Satchell from Wellington Phoenix of the A-League.

The 25-year-old who played for her country at the World Cup and the 2020 Olympics, has also played for SC Sand in the Bundesliga, Canberra United and Sydney FC.

Satchell told “I’ve been playing professionally for about four seasons now and I think it’s a positive step to move to a new environment in England, where I will be challenged to grow and develop as a footballer.

“I spoke with Carolina [Morace] and Nicola [Williams] before signing with the club and it was good to see how things are run. They took me through in quite a lot of detail about what I would experience if I joined.”

Assistant Coach Nicola Williams added: “Paige is a very exciting addition for the club. She will add to our depth of international talent and comes into the squad after a significant period with the Football Ferns at the World Cup.

“Her pace and ability to get past players on the wing will add an x-factor to our team.”
