Dulwich Hamlet have secured the loan signing of young West Ham Women’s goalkeeper Mia North for the 2021-22 season.
The 19-year-old, who is part of the Hammers’ academy programme, was previously at Yeovil Town and has also featured with the Wales U-19 setup.
Mia North said: “I’m 19 now, and I need to be looking to get women’s football experience. Playing in the Under-21s for a couple of years, I need to start looking to go up an age group. The move was pretty easy and I’m really happy to be here.”
“I think communication is definitely one of my biggest traits. I’m very loud on the pitch. I think as well, bravery-wise. I’ll happily throw myself in front of the ball and not care if I’m going to get hurt. Shot stopping ability, distribution as well for sure.”
Manager Ryan Dempsey said: “I’m delighted that West Ham have allowed Mia to continue her development with us, by gaining valuable experience playing adult football where points are on the line every game.”
“Mia has settled in really well and gave an assured performance on her debut against Crystal Palace Development A [in Sunday’s 5-0 victory]. Mia’s composure on the ball was a big asset and she made an excellent save, tipping the ball onto the bar.”
