The 25-year-old forward’s impressive professional career spans four seasons, during which she has established herself as a formidable talent for club and country.


Satchell arrives at Princes Park with a wealth of international experience, headlined by consecutive selections for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.


The Rotorua-born attacker has showcased her offensive prowess for teams around the world, with spells at SC Sand (Frauen Bundesliga), Canberra United, Sydney FC, and Wellington Phoenix (A-League).


“I'm very excited to be coming to London,” Satchell said of her move to Princes Park.


“I've been playing professionally for about four seasons now and I think it's a positive step to move to a new environment in England, where I will be challenged to grow and develop as a footballer.


"I spoke with Carolina [Morace] and Nicola [Williams] before signing with the Club and it was good to see how things are run. They took me through in quite a lot of detail about what I would experience if I joined.


“The chat was really positive and they were excited to have me on board. Likewise, I was super excited to speak with them and make the move to London City.”

Satchell, a dynamic wide forward known for her pace and ability to break the lines, is the latest offensive threat to join the Pride’s frontline, following the arrival of Tinaya Alexander and the return of Lucy Fitzgerald.


First Team Assistant Coach Nicola Williams added: "Paige is a very exciting addition for the Club. She will add to our depth of international talent and comes into the squad after a significant period with the Football Ferns at the World Cup.


"Her pace and ability to get past players on the wing will add an x-factor to our team."

 

With the season just around the corner, now is the perfect time to secure your spot at Princes Park.


London City Lionesses is proud to provide family-friendly football to the Pride, with tickets priced from £5.45 per match.
