I can't wait to test myself in England - Biesmans

New Bristol City Women signing Julie Biesmans says she appreciates the warm welcome she has had from everyone at the club, after arriving in the summer.

 

The talented midfielder only arrived at the club recently due to playing for Belgium in UEFA Women’s Euro 2017, where her side were knocked out in the group stage.

Biesmans, 23, joined the club from Standard Liege and is looking to test herself in a new environment after completing her degree in her native Belgium.

Speaking for the first time to the club, the Belgian international is excited to show what she can do on the pitch this season.

She said: “I really appreciate the welcome that I have had, the girls are always asking if they can help me with something so I already feel really comfortable here in Bristol.

“The Euros was a great experience for both me and my country, everyone learned a lot and it will certainly stand us in good stead for the future. Belgian football is in a really good place at the moment and the support we had in Holland was amazing.

“When I first started playing football it was just for fun, then I slowly progressed through the ranks for my club and country. When I finished my studies and had the opportunity to play here, I couldn’t turn it down because it will make me a better player and I really like the way the team play.

“I like to think I am technically gifted and also an intelligent player, I can distribute the ball well and I like creating chances for my team mates.”

Biesmans added that she hopes the Vixens fans are looking forward to watching her play and that she can’t wait to meet them all.

“I was told there were some big numbers during the Spring Series, I really hope they come down and support us because it gives us a massive boost. I can’t wait to meet them all, I’ve heard nothing but good things.”
