Humphrey is a Robin

Carla Humphrey has re-signed with Bristol City Women ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

The skilful midfielder is entering her third season with the club after joining from Arsenal in the summer of 2017.

Humphrey was ever present in City Women’s midfield last season and helped the club achieve their highest ever WSL finish (6th) and record points total (25 points).

Bristol City Manager, Tanya Oxtoby believes the Barclays FA Women’s Super League is going to see the best of Humphrey this campaign after a season of growth and development.

“Carla is a very gifted player with the ball and we need that going forward at Bristol City. One area where she has really excelled over the last twelve months is her out of possession understanding, said Oxtoby.

“Her ability to execute that combined with her attacking attributes has made her much more of a rounded footballer. I think the league is going to see the best of her this season moving forward and we’re really excited that she is staying with us.”

“The club’s ambition moving forward and the increased support from the men’s side was another reason behind me staying for a third season. We’re moving in the right direction and it is an exciting time for the club with the group of young players we have got.”

Carla Humphrey said: “I’m excited for the season ahead after such a good year for the club.

“We have developed defensively and built strong foundations that will allow us to push on and grow as a group. Tanya now wants to work on our attacking ability and I feel my attributes and style of play can can help with that.

“Tanya was a big factor in my decision to stay. I have developed all aspects of my game under her and I’m looking forward to seeing how much further I can push myself next season.

“The club’s ambition moving forward and the increased support from the men’s side was another reason behind me staying for a third season. We’re moving in the right direction and it is an exciting time for the club with the group of young players we have got.”
