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.”
