Allen signs professional terms with City Women

Bristol City Women are delighted to announce that Flo Allen has signed her first professional contract with the club.

Allen, who turned 18 just this week, initially represented the SGS College and development squad before breaking into the first team during the promotion winning WSL 2 campaign last season.

Originating from Norfolk, the young star is an England youth international, representing England Under-15, 17 and 18 to date. The versatile youngster played a key part in the England Under-17 World Cup campaign last September.

Upon signing her first contract, Allen is delighted to achieve her goal of becoming a professional footballer.

She said: “When I moved here to chase my dream of playing professionally, my aim was to get a contract by the time I was 18 and I’ve done that. My family have been hugely supportive of my move here and I’m glad I can give them something back.

“I am over the moon as I love being in this environment, the club puts a real emphasis on developing its young players. It is only the start of my journey and now I am ready to work really hard to repay the faith the club has put in me.

“This club is back in WSL 1 where it belongs and on a personal note I am eager to test myself at this level. As a group we saw what to expect from the league during the Spring Series and we are looking forward to the challenge.”

Kirk added that it was an easy to decision to offer Allen a contract: “Flo has come on leaps and bounds since she has been at the club.

“Everything I ask her to work on, she takes on board and uses it to improve as a player. She is very coachable and a delight to work with.

“We have a tight knit group here and she is an integral part of that, I’m delighted to give her the first contract of her career because it is a testament to her hard work.”
