Goalkeeper Nina Wilson signs for London CityLionesses

London City Lionesses have today confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Nina Wilson in

the January transfer window.


Wilson had most recently played professionally in the Icelandic League for

Fjardabyggd/Höttur/Leiknir, with previous spells playing for Watford FC Women, Lewes

FC and Brighton & Hove Albion FC. She has also previously represented England with

the College National Team in 2017/18 and will be available for selection for this

weekend’s match versus Durham.


The 21-year-old was first-choice goalkeeper for Watford FC in the 2019/20 season –

starting 14 out of 19 games and keeping five clean sheets – with her side challenging

for promotion to the FA Women’s Championship before the season was delayed – due to the covid-19 pandemic.


Nina Wilson said: “I am ready to make the next step in my career and I can think of

nowhere better than with London City Lionesses. Everyone I talked to before

joining the club had only good things to say and I was excited by meeting people

from LCL. I can’t wait to get going and hope to make an impact on the pitch as

soon as possible.”



First Team Head Coach Melissa Phillips said: “I’m tremendously excited about the

addition of Nina to our squad. She brings a tenacious work ethic coupled with a

desire to improve her game daily. She has already added value to our culture and

excited to see her thrive within the environment now that she’s on board.”
