Ellie Wilson Joins Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women’s FC have announced the signing of 18 year old defender Ellie Wilson. 

Under 19s England International Ellie joins The Vixens from Reading Women FC, where she progressed through the Academy and Development Team making her first team debut in 2014.

On signing for Bristol City Ellie said: “I am really excited to be joining Bristol City this season. It is a great opportunity for me to be involved in what promises to be a great season for the club and I can’t wait to get started.”

Manager Willie Kirk added: “I'm really excited about Ellie's signing.  She has enormous potential and I'm hoping to be able to play a big part in shaping her future career in terms of helping her to develop into the player that she wants to be.  

“Her progress in the last 6 months has been fantastic and I’ve watched her performances with England U19s very closely, and I know that the national staff think very highly of her.

“Like most of the squad, Ellie is very versatile and in her case, will give us options in both full back positions and at centre back.  She is very athletic and is continually improving her technical skills. Full time training will help her massively and she will improve tactically as she is exposed to more matches at club and international level."
