Sheffield United Women sign forward Juliet Adebowale-Arimoro

Sheffield United's new signing, Juliet Adebowale-Arimoro

Sheffield United have signed 20-year-old Nigerian youth international forward Juliet Adebowale-Arimoro from London Bees.

She joined the Bees at the start of last season after several years in the Brighton & Hove Albion academy, and she recently gained Championship experience during a dual-registration spell at Watford.

Arimoro adds extra options to the Blades attack and has impressed during pre-season, scoring in the team’s friendly against Blackburn Rovers in July and again against Liverpool Feds.

Arimoro said of her transfer: “I’m really happy. This is a great to be at and I think it will improve my career. It’s different, a different city for me but it’s been good. Training has been good, I’ve gained a lot of experience in the pre-season games and the girls have been really good. It feels like home, it’s been nice.”

Head coach Jonathan Morgan commented: “I spoke to Juliet just before pre-season and she wanted a chance to show what she has. She was willing to come all the way up and we provided her with a trial. She’s quick, she’s scored goals in pre-season which is fantastic for us and she is definitely someone who can definitely add to our strike power for the new season.”
