City Women sign Julie Biesmans

Bristol City Women are delighted to announce that Julie Biesmans has joined the club from Standard Liege ahead of the new WSL 1 season.

Biesmans, 23, spent nine years at Standard Liege, joining them at the age of 14.

 

A Belgium youth international, the young midfielder has represented the Belgium Under-15, 17 and 19 age-groups respectively.

 

She made her debut for the National team in 2011, making 49 appearances to date, most recently during UEFA Women’s Euro 2017.

 

On signing for the Vixens, the Belgian international is excited to test herself at WSL 1 level.

 

She said: “I’m really excited to be here and get this move over the line.

 

“When I heard City Women were interested, I didn’t hesitate to come down to SGS College and look around the facilities. I was really impressed with the facilities on offer and the atmosphere at the club, everyone is so welcoming.

 

“I am looking for a new challenge and to further my career, this club puts emphasis on developing young players and the style of football that the club play appeals to me. I can’t wait to get going in September and test myself at WSL 1 level.”

 

Willie Kirk said of his latest signing: “I had been impressed with Julie when I was watching some footage of Belgium in relation to signing Yana. She handled the ball very well and found space on the pitch.

 

“When I spoke to her agent, I was told there was an interest from her so I didn’t hesitate to try and get the deal done.

 

“Unfortunately, the EURO’s held things up a bit and then there was other interest in her from across Europe, but I’m delighted that we convinced her to come to Bristol.

 

“She will be an excellent addition to the squad and gives us flexibility in the middle of the pitch. That is one area of the squad that I feel we are very strong in, and I will now focus my attention on other areas of the pitch.”
