Reading FC Women have signed Welsh international defender Gemma Evans from Bristol City on a two-year contract.

The 24-year-old centre-half spent three seasons at Bristol City, making 66 appearances in all competitions and has also played for Wales since 2016.

Royals’ manager Kelly Chambers told “I’m delighted to bring Gemma to Reading. She is a player that I feel will really suit out style of play. She has shown great development over the last couple of seasons and more importantly she is a consistent performer.

“Gemma will boost our backline with the attributes she will bring. She is a hard working player that has so much hunger and desire to want to learn and get better and I have no doubt that in this environment we will see an even better player. I am excited to get started and work with Gemma.”
