Alexander arrives at Princes Park in the prime years of her professional career, with previous experience in the Barclays Women’s Super League, France’s Division 1 Féminine, and the American National Women’s Soccer League.


Before the talented 24-year-old entered the senior ranks, she played four seasons in the NCAA with Louisianna State University, for whom she amassed 74 goals and 22 assists in 81 appearances for the first division outfit.


The Englishwoman’s standout collegiate performances were recognised ahead of the 2022 NWSL Draft, which saw the Washington Spirit select her with the fourteenth overall pick.


Transfers to Montpellier, Reading, and London City followed for Alexander, with the Berkshire-born attacker thrilled to put pen to paper with the Pride.


“I was drawn to London City because of the coaching staff at the Club,” said Alexander.


“I visited the training ground [before signing] and I felt like they really knew what they were talking about. Carolina [Morace] has a good resume and has coached at a high level, it’s a big thing that she coached a men’s team. Nicola [Williams] has lots of experience and a good career too. They both seemed really keen, which made me want to sign here.”


Alexander is London City’s fourth new arrival of the summer, following the additions of midfielder Connie Scofield, defender Maddi Wilde, and goalkeeper Sophie Hillyerd.


First Team Assistant Coach Nicola Williams added: “Tinaya has a wealth of experience, having played in the United States, France, and England. She is a really exciting attacking player, who we will try to get on the ball as much as possible.”

 

Tinaya has joined the Pride – and now it’s your chance.

London City Lionesses is proud to offer family-friendly and affordable season tickets, with prices starting from just £5.45 per match.
