Durham Women FC are delighted to announce the signing of striker Bridget Galloway.
The youngster spent last season with Sunderland, where she netted 21 times in 23 league games in the FA Women’s National League, and has previously played for the Lady Black Cats in the FA Women’s Super League.
Galloway has also represented England at youth level, and will add further quality and competition to the Wildcats’ front-line ahead of the 2020/21 FA Women’s Championship season.
Speaking after putting pen to paper, she said: “I’m excited to get started and hit the ground running
.”After hearing what Durham’s ambitions were in terms of wanting to go on and succeed, I thought I could play a part in that and could play a vital role.”
I’ve had a little bit of experience in the WSL, but that was obviously coming on off the bench. I managed to get six goals though, and that gives me a bit of confidence. I’m just ready to step-up my game.”
Manager Lee Sanders added: “I’d like to welcome Bridget to the club and I’m delighted she’s signed for us.
“We’ve not hidden the fact that we need to build our squad and acquire the best young talent we can in the local area – including what we already have within the club and inevitably some players from outside the club as well – as we look to move forward.
“She’ll add real competition for places in the first-team squad and comes with a great track record in the National League.
“She’s a striker, she scores goals – that’s what we’ve brought her in to do. We’re really excited to see what she can bring to our forward line and if she can contribute to our goal tally then I’m sure we’ll have another really successful season.”
A full interview with Bridget Galloway will be available on durhamwfc.co.uk tomorrow.
